Snow for Lower Mainland

A weather system will approach the south coast tonight, bringing snow to the region, according to Environment Canada.

Snow will start over Vancouver Island this evening and spread to the mainland overnight. Depending on location, the snow is expected to taper off or transition to rain mixed with wet snow sometime near midday on Monday.

With snow levels reaching near sea level, snowfall accumulations of 2 to 5 cm are expected for most regions with higher amounts up to 10 cm over higher elevations and for Howe Sound.

Be prepared for changing weather conditions during the morning commute on Monday, cautions Environment Canada.
