It’s already been a wild week in Metro Vancouver… and it’s about to get worse.

On Monday, a snowfall warning in effect for the region stated a long period of snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm expected.

Now, Environment Canada has released the following snowfall warnings:

Long period of snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm of snow

  • City of Vancouver – including Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • North Shore – including West Vancouver and North Vancouver

The warning states that a long period of snowfall with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is now expected.

A second warning keeps the 10 to 15 cm warning for Surrey and Langley as well as Richmond and Delta.

Long period of snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm of snow

  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta

“This second disturbance off southwest Vancouver Island is spreading snow to virtually the entire South Coast this morning,” Environment Canada stated in their snowfall warning today. “Further accumulations of 5 to 10 cm can be expected in most areas. The snowfall will gradually taper off this afternoon into the early evening as low centre weakens.”

The snowfall has forced most of the region’s colleges and universities to close, as well as the region’s public schools.
