There’s a rainfall warning in effect from Hope to Abbotsford.

“A plume of tropical moisture will continue to bring rain to the Fraser Valley through today,” reads the report.

“An additional 15 to 25 mm of rain on top of what has already been received is expected today. The rain will begin to taper off this afternoon from west to east.”

Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.
