Environment Canada said Metro Vancouver, the western Fraser Valley, Whistler and parts of the Sunshine Coast could get 100 millimetres of rain while the Howe Sound and the eastern Fraser Valley could see as much as 150 millimetres.
The rain was expected to be heaviest Sunday afternoon and night ahead of the cold front, easing Monday as the cold front pushes it out of the region.
Environment Canada issued special weather statements for parts of the south coast and southern Interior.
It was the second so-called atmospheric river to sweep over B.C. in the last four weeks and was expected to arrive as snow in the Boundary region, East and West Columbia, Kootenay Lake and the West Kootenay.
