Metro Vancouver drivers are being warned to stay off the roads due to tonight’s adverse weather conditions.

“If you’re […] not prepared for challenging winter driving conditions, please avoid any unnecessary travel on the roads in the Lower Mainland,” wrote Drive BC on Twitter.


Tonight’s snowfall has resulted in vehicles getting stuck on roads, transit delays,  and the Lions Gate Bridge being shut down.

A snowfall warning is currently in effect for the Metro Vancouver region.

“A quick 10 cm of accumulation is expected this evening before snow eases overnight,” said Environment Canada in a statement.

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