A Pacific low-pressure system will continue to bring cool, moist westerly weather to southern B.C. for the next week, says CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe.

The system arrived on Sunday as rounds of thunderstorms tracked up from the south across much of B.C. leading to severe thunderstorm warnings for the Interior, more fork lightning for the coast and a delayed Seahawks game in Seattle.

The storm dumped significant rainfall on several areas including:

- YVR - 28 mm.

- Downtown Vancouver - 37 mm.

- West Vancouver - 45 mm,

- Coquitlam - 30 mm,

- Pitt Meadows - 24 mm,

- Squamish - 22 mm,

- Kelowna - 18 mm.

The showers will linger Monday along the South Coast, but will generally dry up into the evening. The lightning risk is over for the South Coast Monday but continues for the Interior.

Tuesday will be cloudy, but generally dry for Vancouver and the same on Wednesday before another low-pressure system reaches the coast around Thursday, bringing with it a showery weekend ahead.
