“A cold low is approaching from the Gulf of Alaska and will give heavy rainfall to Northern B.C.,” Environment Canada said, adding that 50 to 80 millimetres of rain is expected across northern B.C. through the week.

DriveBC has issued travel advisories due to heavy rain along Highways 1 and 97 near Ashcroft, and Highway 99 near Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, 50 kilomtres north of Lillooet.
