Feb 3 2019, 5:20 pm

Some areas of Metro Vancouver received a dusting of snow overnight, and this is expected to pile up as the day progresses, building up into what could be the region’s first significant snowfall event of the winter season.

An updated weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 5:45 am Sunday pegs snowfall accumulations today at between 1 cm and 5 cm, increasing to up to 10 cm in Howe Sound.

As usual, higher elevations and areas away from the moderating influence of sea water can anticipate to see more snow.

A special weather statement is in effect for the region, as it’s expected to see the coldest temperatures of the season this week.

“Following a relatively mild first half of winter, a transition to much colder conditions continues this morning over the South Coast. The cold air will persist into the latter half of next week,” reads the weather statement.

“Additionally, winds will give blustery conditions in exposed areas near the mainland inlets through Monday.”
