So much for sunshine. A special weather statement remains in effect for the City of Vancouver and parts of Metro Vancouver today as Arctic air and a potent storm system advances southward across the South Coast from the Alaskan Panhandle.
Increasing cloudiness and periods of rain are in the forecast while periods of snow over higher terrain up are expected to begin this afternoon. According to Environment Canada, “Snowfall accumulations of 5 to 15 cm are quite possible, especially away from the Strait of Georgia, before the snow ends Wednesday morning.”
Drivers should be especially cautious, as “weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.”
