Don’t get too used to Metro Vancouver’s frozen tundra landscape as we’re about to dive into a wet, warming phase.
While the snowstorm has passed and sunny conditions now prevail, temperatures will gradually warm up throughout the day to a high of 4°C, according to Environment Canada.
Rainfall will also begin this evening at approximately 7 pm, and it is not expected to transition into snow overnight as temperatures will only reach a low of 3°C.
More rain and warmer temperatures, reaching a high of 6°C, is forecast for Sunday. Similar conditions will persist through the following weekend, with lasting rainfall and temperatures well above freezing.
Depending on the location, between 10 and 30 cm of snow fell on the region Friday through early Saturday morning, on top of the snow that fell earlier in the week.
Expect the possibility of localized flooding due to the likelihood of a rapid melt.
