The past 24 hours of weather have been anything but ordinary.

On Tuesday evening, the North Shore and parts of Vancouver were battered with thunder and hail, bringing several centimetres of slush onto local roads.

The bizarre weather didn’t stop there, however. On Wednesday morning, Environment Canada warned of snowfall across Metro Vancouver, calling for accumulation at elevations as low as 50 metres.

Although much of it has begun to melt, there was notable snowfall in Vancouver, Surrey, Delta, and Burnaby.

Sadly, it was no April Fools joke.

Fortunately, the snow looks to be an odd occurrence, as Environment Canada calls for a mix of sun and showers over the next few days.

But hey, if it did snow again, would you really be surprised?
