==Discussion==
a major change in the weather pattern will develop on Friday.
The high pressure system that has trapped wildfire smoke over
southern b.C. Will finally shift east thanks to a pair of incoming
storms. The storms will merge two jet streams into a single river of
sub-tropical moisture that will bathe the South Coast with the first
significant rainfall in months.

Weather models are indicating 80 to 120 mm of rain over the South
Coast between Friday night and Monday morning. 20 to 30 mm of rain is
expected to carry over into the mountainous regions of the interior
during the same period.

Due to the drought conditions over these regions, the soil has a
reduced capacity to absorb water. Heavy rainfall thus increases the
risk of flash flooding. Additionally, given the recent prolonged dry
period, Road surfaces may become slippery resulting in poor driving
conditions.

To mitigate the risk of flash flooding, make sure drain spouts and
sewer covers are free of debris, so water can freely drain. During
heavy rains, avoid roadway underpasses, drainage ditches, low lying
areas and water collection areas. They can unexpectedly flood or
overflow. Do not try to drive across a flooded Road. You cannot tell
the condition of the Road under the water.


The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as
warnings may be required or extended.
