We can't even score a rainstorm! :x

Just out of curiosity, has the lower mainland ever experienced an AR event on the scale of October 2003 and January 2005 since those two occurred? From my memory, I don't recall anything remotely close. I think October 2003 was a bit worse than 2005, but both were very similar in intensities.

November 2006 should come pretty close. There were a few storms which dropped well over 100mm in the mountains and over 50mm in the valleys.

November and December 2006 have got to be some of the funnest weather months. Lots of storms from major AR events to a massive blizzard to back to back windstorms. Pretty incredible and rare.

Also quite a bit of snow in mid Jan 2007. Cold too.

A little underwhelming but lots of atmospheric river left. It almost looks like the bulk of the moisture might hit just to our North. As for some other AR events Oct 2003 and Jan 2005 were the biggest and baddest. But some others off the top of my head that were definitely no slouches were Nov 2006, March 2007, early Dec 2007 (worse in Washington state), January 2009 (after the snowfalls), Sept 2010 (for the Bella Coola region) and late Feb into early March 2013. Some earlier ones I can remember were September 1991 (labor day weekend, major floods in sea to sky) Thanksgiving 1984, and Nov 1983 (hit the North shore hard, creeks overflowing everywhere). I was 6 and i still remember that one. My dad also told me of an epic atmospheric river in the early 80s that caused a bridge to wash out killing something like 8 people near Lions Bay. It also altered the course of Lynn creek in North Vancouver and destroyed many water intakes thus opening up Lynn headwaters to the public after the damage was too great to the infrastructure to keep using that area as a watershed for drinking water.

I believe February 1982 was a big one. Maybe the one he is remembering. And December 2007 hit Vancouver Island hard, right on the heals of a major snowstorm. 180mm of rain and Snow melt in 3 days.

To my knowledge, the largest AR event in recorded history (in Metro Vancouver) occurred in January 1935. 300-400mm fell in just 5 days over a 50-100cm snowpack.
