VANCOUVER -- Parts of B.C.'s Lower Mainland saw more than light rain on Friday morning.

Thunder and lightning were also seen in the city.
Others reported lightning in Port Moody and in Langley.
Environment Canada's morning forecast included a risk of thunderstorms around noon, with the temperature hovering just below 10 C.
