Metro Vancouver could see more snow before the weekend is over.

Environment Canada has issued another snowfall warning for the region as a second system approaches BC’s South Coast. The cool air mass will arrive Saturday evening, bringing a mix of snow and rain depending on your elevation.

West Vancouver, North Vancouver, and Coquitlam could see 15 centimetres of snow accumulation, Environment Canada said in its weather warning.

Lower-lying Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster will likely see wet snow mixed with rain. Accumulations of five to 10 centimetres are forecast for those cities.

Richmond, Delta, Tsawwassen, and Ladner will likely see only rain. Surrey and Langley may also see slightly warmer temperatures because of southerly winds, leading to a mix of rain and snow.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions,” the weather bulletin said. “Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.”

At the same time, Metro Vancouver is also subject to a wind warning. Gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour are happening near the water.
