Rain and wind will continue to lash much of Metro Vancouver on Monday, Feb. 28, 2022.

A rainfall warning issued this weekend by Environment Canada remains in effect until Monday evening (Feb 28).

"A moisture-laden weather system is spreading heavy rain across the south coast. Heavy rain continues today," states the national weather agency.

Heavy rains can lead to flooding and dangerous road conditions. 

Communities affected by the warning include the City of Vancouver, Burnaby, Maple Ridge and North Vancouver. A warning hasn't been issued for Metro Vancouver's more southern areas, though rain is still expected.

Rainfall amounts 15 to 25 mm are expected Monday before the heavy rain tapers off this evening.

While heavy rains will dissipate, showers remain in the Metro Vancouver forecast through Wednesday, according to Environment Canada. 

Monday's daytime high is expected to reach 10C, with an overnight low of 8C. 

Sun returns to the forecast Thursday, with temps staying in the 10C zone. 

Beyond Vancouver, weather warnings and special statements remain in place Monday for the Fraser Valley, Whistler, along the Coquihalla, and the Kootenays as stormy weather with rain and snow are expected across the southern areas of the province.
