Risk of heavy rain, snow, wind as early fall storm nears British Columbia, Canada

A significant storm is approaching British Columbia, threatening the province with heavy rain, snow and strong winds.

An early fall storm is on the way for British Columbia late this week, bringing heavy rainfall, high-elevation snow, and strong winds to the province, The Weather Network reports.

Lower elevations will see only rain from this system, with widespread totals in the 25 - 50+ mm (1 - 2+ inches) range for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, meteorologists said.

With trees still carrying their summer foliage, as well as the stress from this summer's drought conditions, there is a potential for some downed limbs and power outages on Friday and Saturday, September 21 and 22 as this system moves on shore.
