Powerful storms set to batter the BC coast

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the BC coast and Haida Gwaii.

Forecasters are predicting a series of powerful storms to hit the province over the next few days.

The first storm will move through the South Coast Tuesday bringing wind and rain of up to 40mm to Vancouver, Victoria, and the Fraser Valley.

Officials say a second, more powerful storm is expected Thursday and Friday, packing a wallop of wind and heavy rain.

Environment Canada says the strongest wind gusts will reach the North Coast, including Haida Gwaii and Prince Rupert Wednesday night and early Thursday along with moderate amounts of rain.

The Central Coast, including Bella Bella will feel the strongest wind of the storm Thursday morning along with moderate rain.

Environment Canada says the timing of the storm’s exit from BC into Washington State is uncertain.  The weather could linger over southern parts of the province all day Friday bringing lots of rain.
