According to Environment Canada, an upper trough of low pressure will generate an easterly flow across the northern BC Interior from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning.
Moisture embedded in this flow will impact on the eastern facing slopes of the northern Rockies resulting in heavy rainfall. Rainfall amounts ranging from 40 to 60 mm are expected from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning.
Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads.
