Canada’s leading weather networks disagree on the forecast for next week, but it’s possible snow is on the way.
The Weather Network says Metro Vancouver has a 30% chance of snow and/or rain on Monday, but Environment Canada has a bit of a different forecast.
Vancouverites know what that tends to mean: Slush.
But then again, Environment Canada calls for sun, so the day could stay dry.
Either way, it’s smart to prepare for snow at the beginning of the week. Dress in layers, pack a pair of sunglasses, and hope for the best.

Both forecasters say temperatures will reach a high of 6°C and a nighttime low of minus 4°C on Monday.
In agreement, they anticipate rain on Saturday but sun on Sunday.
Some amateur meteorologists have taken to Twitter to warn Vancouver residents an arctic blast could be on its way, but this isn’t reflected in either Environment Canada or the Weather Network’s predictions.
Listen up! A full blown arctic blast is expected to effect the BC south coast beginning next Monday. Very cold temperatures may cause any fresh growth on plants or trees to be severely damaged or destroyed. High outflow winds may be damaging and may cause power outages. pic.twitter.com/hwo6ecTHZ4

There’s a 40% chance it’ll snow on February 24 according to the Weather Network, although Environment Canada challenged them yet again by forecasting a sunny day.
