The latter includes Vancouver, the North Shore, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Chilliwack, Abbotsford and Hope.

Forecasters called for a break on Friday afternoon as the incoming warm front moves north toward Squamish, but another round of rain will last til midday Saturday.

Officials urge residents to watch for possible washouts or flooding near rivers, creeks and culverts.
