A 'Historic' Storm Is Hitting BC & This Hour-By-Hour Forecast Shows When It'll Get Wild

B.C. has been hit with storm after storm, and now things are getting even worse with a historical system continuing to make its way through the province.

The Weather Network report said that this severe weather will continue through Monday. Residents should be prepared for power outages, downed trees, difficult travel including ferry cancellations, and the possibility of mudslides, forecasters warn.

The weather bomb has already caused power outages for tens of thousands of customers on Sunday, says the report.

The wind warnings are for parts of Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and Howe Sound.

The rain will also continue to come down hard throughout the day. The report said, "100-150 mm are expected for western Vancouver Island and the North Shore Mountains while 50-75 mm is anticipated for the Lower Mainland."

According to The Weather Network report, BC Ferries had also preemptively cancelled nearly two dozen sailings on Monday due to the winds.

The report said that this jet stream has actually "sent pressure values careening to unprecedented lows," setting the "new Pacific Northwest pressure record. The previous record was 943 mb, which was recorded during post-tropical cyclone Harriet in 1977."

Here is the hour-by-hour forecast for high-risk areas, so you know what to expect.
