Some parts of Metro Vancouver have received up to 30 cm of snow in the last 24 hours.

Earlier today, Environment Canada released a list of south coast snowfall measurements.


According to the weather agency, Coquitlam received the most snowfall in Metro Vancouver with 28 cm.

Surrey saw 16 to 19 cm, Delta received 14 cm, and Kitsilano measured between 11 to 14 cm.

Environment Canada has issued another Snowfall Warning for the region.

The areas affected this time include the following:

  • Metro Vancouver – North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley

According to the national weather agency, β€œan area of low pressure currently offshore will approach the BC coast late this afternoon.”

That low pressure “will bring strong southeasterly winds to the region. This will create a slow transition from snow to rain for areas mainly near the Strait of Georgia and low lying areas tonight.”
