According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, two rainfall warnings are in effect today between Nanoose Bay and Fanny Bay, and the Malahat Highway.

For the eastern part of the island, rain could go up to 50 millimeters, with possible flooding in local low-lying areas.

While 50 millimeters is also expected for the highway, the warning says there are threats of water pooling and low visibility because of the rain.
