 A third ``atmospheric river'' is arriving in British Columbia today for a two-day visit.

Environment Canada has issued alerts and special weather statements warning of 60- to 140 millimetres of rainfall on Metro Vancouver, the southern Sunshine Coast and the Lower Mainland, and between 100- and 200 millimetres on parts of Vancouver Island and B-C's central coast.

BC's public safety minister plans to use the government's Alert Ready system to keep people informed of imminent danger via radio, T-V and wireless devices.
