Vancouver could see more snow return this weekend

Vancouver weather was nothing short of a dice roll this week, but we haven’t seen the last of the snow.

After a rare downpour of snow hit Vancouver, it was quickly dissipated by an equally rare (but much welcome) burst of sun.

Weather forecast from YVR weather station (Environment Canada)

Reports from Environment Canada explain that our usual weekend showers could quickly turn into more flurries and wet snowfall – especially at higher elevation.

The snow comes thanks to a strong surge of arctic air; the flurries forecasted to begin as early as Saturday morning and could persist from Saturday night to Sunday in the day.

Due to the impact the incoming flurries will have on higher elevations, Environment Canada has issued a warning specifically for driving on the Sea To Sky Highway.

Up to 20 cm is expected on the highway, and drivers are strongly urged to either prepare for less-than-ideal driving conditions, or reschedule travel plans as necessary.
