Nasty weather is predicted for most of British Columbia, with warnings about wind, rain and snowfall, along with winter storm watches in several areas of the province.
But Prince George is not in the line of fire.
Environment Canada says the central coast, inland sections, Howe Sound and the Fraser Valley will get the worst of the rain, with heavy downpours of up to 150 millimetres of rain along the coast.
Wind will be the problem in the Peace River region and Fraser Canyon, with the Pacific frontal system bringing gusts up to 90 km/h.
Winter storm warnings have also been posted for the Fraser Canyon along the Coquihalla Highway and Highway 3, where snow is expected to change to rain as warm air moves over southern B.C.
The forecaster says a frontal system loaded with subtropical moisture from the Pacific is moving across B.C.'s southern coast, with the potential to produce heavy downpours, flash floods and pooling water.
The heavy rain is expected to last into Monday.
According to Environment Canada, Prince George won’t bear the brunt of the system moving through the province. Rain or snow are in the Monday forecast with a high of 3 C and a low of -3 C. A mix of rain and snow is expected on Tuesday and it will get chilly at night with a predicted low of -10C after a daytime high of zero.
More sun is expected on Wednesday with a high of 3 C, changing to snow at night and a low of -1C. There's a 60 per cent chance of flurries or rain, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Highs will be near the freeezing mark late in the week, warming to 5 C on Sunday, with lows ranging from -1 C on Thursday to -10 C on Saturday.
Sunday's high hit 7.5 C. Normal for this time of year in Prince George is a high of 1C and a low of -8 C.
