Winter is coming, Vancouver.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather alert for “rain possibly mixed with wet snow after midnight Friday with a slight risk of localized freezing rain.”
The alert is in effect for the following areas:
According to the weather agency, a “weak weather system” is heading to the coast on Friday night.
“In advance of this system, cloud cover and winds will increase late in the day and likely hinder surface temperatures from dropping below zero Friday night. With the layer of relatively warmer air above the surface, a scenario of rain mixed with some wet snow is favoured,” said Environment Canada.
Although the forecast is showing a mixed bag of weather, be prepared for something wet and cold to be falling from the sky on Friday night.
