Another blast of snow is expected to hit the Lower Mainland.
Environment Canada’s snowfall warning has carried over into Friday, affecting the following parts of Metro Vancouver:
- City of Vancouver – including Burnaby and New Westminster
- Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
- Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
- Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta
- North Shore – including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
Snowfall accumulation between 5 to 10 cm is expected, due to a frontal system moving into BC’s south coast.
The snow will intensify this morning before tapering off in the afternoon, and at times, may result in wet flurries — especially near the water.
Parts of the North Shore and higher terrain of northeast Metro Vancouver may see more than 15 cm roll in this evening.
Commuters and drivers are advised to prepare for difficult travel conditions.
The quickly accumulating snow means that drivers should reduce speeds and take extra caution.
