Metro Vancouver Weather Forecast Calls For Flash Flooding This Week

Vancouver Weather Forecast

A rainy Vancouver weather forecast would come as a shock to few; however, the amount of rainfall is decidedly more impressive.

Starting Monday, January 29th, Metro Vancouver will start a week of very heavy rainfall that is not expected to let up. What’s more, the forecast states that heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. In addition, localized flooding in lower-lying areas is possible.

Unlike the king tide at the beginning of the month, this heavy rainfall will cause fresh water bodies to rise. The Government of Canada advises people to watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
