Third rainstorm in a week

The South Coast will be pounded by rain on Saturday night. 

A rainfall warning is in place for the Fraser Valley, Metro Vancouver and for Victoria and the Gulf Islands.

As much as 70 millimetres of rain is expected in some areas while others will see at least 50 mm, according to Environment Canada

A wind warning is also in effect for southern Vancouver Island, where wind gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour are anticipated.

It's the third time in five days that residents in the South Coast have been bracing for possible flooding and power outages.

Stretches of bad whether like this are not, however, uncommon this time of year, according to Environment Canada.

“We’ve had quite a trifecta of low-pressure systems impacting the South Coast this week,” meteorologist Johnathan Bau said.

“Fortunately this will be the last of the three."

Bau added that dryer weather and some sunshine is expected throughout the region by Monday.
