Snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver

ENVIRONMENT Canada issued a snowfall warning on Wednesday morning for:

City of Vancouver – including Burnaby and New Westminster
North Shore – including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm is expected.

A frontal system advancing from the Pacific will result in snow developing Wednesday morning over Metro Vancouver with snowfall amounts up to 5 cm.

Meanwhile a low developing southwest of the region will allow snow to reintensify Wednesday evening. Snow is expected to change to rain near the sea level late Wednesday afternoon while snow will continue over higher terrain with snowfall amounts up to 10 cm tonight. Freezing level will rise further and the snow will change to rain through the region on Thursday morning.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
