Special weather statement in effect for:
•Fraser Valley - east including Chilliwack
•Fraser Valley - west including Abbotsford

Powerful wind storm to strike the BC coast Thursday...

A powerful low pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska will send an intense cold front barrelling toward the BC coast tonight. This rapidly moving storm will provide a few hours of increasingly strong southeast winds as it approaches, followed by a wind shift and a few hours of rapidly diminishing westerly winds after it passes.

The strongest winds will occur after midnight on the North and Central Coasts. On the South Coast including Vancouver, Victoria, and Nanaimo, the strongest winds will occur Thursday morning.

Very heavy rain will accompany this system with total rainfalls between 50 and 100 millimetres likely. Rain from the storm may linger over Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Friday, boosting rainfall totals above 100 millimetres.

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

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weather.gc.ca.

This special weather statement hasn't been updated, but the current forecast for the Fraser valley say's wind south 30 km/h increasing to 50 to 70 near noon.

Warnings
2:55 PM PST Sunday 22 November 2015
Snowfall warning in effect for:

North Okanagan - including Vernon
Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm is expected.

Snow will fall starting overnight and continue Monday. The snow will be caused by a clash of air masses over the southern interior, where a developing Pacific front off the coast meets cold arctic air pushing down from the central interior. Up to 20 cm of snow will fall over the Arrow Slocan region, 15 cm over West Columbia, and 10 cm over Shuswap, North Thompson and Northern Okanagan. The snow will continue through Monday and taper off by Tuesday.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight. For information on emergency plans and kits go to http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/

Snowfall Warnings are issued when significant snowfall is expected.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. To report severe weather, send an email to pacificstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #BCStorm.
