After on and off showers for much of the week, another wet weekend is in store for the region.
"Heavy rain moved into the B.C. coast this morning and will continue for much of the weekend before gradually easing early next week," says Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter.
Up to 70 mm of rain is forecast in the hardest hit areas through Saturday, with additional rain expected through Saturday night and into Sunday.

Up to 50 mm of rain is also forecast south of the border, sparking concerns in Oso, Washington where a deadly mudslide hit last week.
It's all about the snow for areas in the higher elevation with between 25-40 cm forecast through Saturday.
