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.”
