Metro Vancouver can’t seem to catch a break on the weather front, with new wind and rainfall warnings issued Tuesday morning for parts of the region.

Environment Canada says a strong cold front is approaching the south coast and is expected to arrive by Tuesday evening.

Winds of between 70 and 90 kilometres per hour are forecast for the city of Vancouver, the North Shore and Metro Vancouver’s southeast and southwest, including Surrey, Langley, Richmond and Delta.

The weather agency says areas along the exposed coast and Howe Sound will bear the brunt of the gusts, which are expected to ease overnight.

Heavy rain is also on the way, with up to 50 millimetres expected by Wednesday morning for the North Shore and Metro Vancouver’s northeast, including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge.
