Environment Canada has issued a warning that another fall storm should hit the south coast overnight Saturday and is expected to deliver 50 to 70 millimetres of rain, depending on the location.

The alert was sent out Friday afternoon covering Metro Vancouver including Maple Ridge and Langley, with rain to start over Vancouver Island tonight, reaching the mainland coast by Saturday morning. Rainfall is expected to intensify through the afternoon and evening.

Localized flooding is possible in low-lying areas as rainfall increases, but conditions are forecast to improve around midnight Saturday with only a few showers lingering into Sunday.
