Environment Canada is warning of swollen rivers and washouts for parts of coastal B.C. and snow for several Interior districts.
A rainfall warning has been posted for the central coast and west Vancouver Island as a frontal system moves south, bringing rain totals that are forecast to exceed 100 millimetres.
The forecaster warns the moist system could prompt local flooding and washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
A long period of snowfall is forecast for the regions of Peace River, Kinbasket, North Columbia, North Thompson, Okanagan Valley, Shuswap and Williston.
Environment Canada says residents in those areas can expect from 15 to 30 centimetres of heavy snow before it lets up on Tuesday.
It says drivers travelling in those areas through New Year’s Eve should consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.
