Believe it or not, Vancouver’s stunning sunshine could be coming to an end – for a few days, at least.
Environment Canada is calling for a 60% to 70% chance of rain and wet snow starting late this afternoon.
Clouds are expected to roll in later this morning, with periods of rain starting at 3 pm. Once temperatures drop later this evening, the precipitation is expected to turn into wet snow.

The wet snowfall will likely continue overnight and carry over through Thursday afternoon.
Fortunately, the sunshine is expected to make a return for the weekend, just in time for daylight saving time.
As always, in the case of any snowfall, be sure to give extra time while commuting and drive according to conditions.
