2nd snowstorm hits Metro Vancouver in 2 days; traffic snarled, ferries cancelled

The second snowstorm to hit Metro Vancouver in two days caused traffic headaches, ferry cancellations and school closures Wednesday.

A snowfall warning issued for the region predicted as much as 20 centimetres in higher elevations, while thick wet snow and blowing snow fell closer to sea level.

The storm followed just 24 hours after a similar blizzard hit the region, snarling traffic from the early morning to the noon hour.

The latest storm forced the closure of the main campus of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby along with all campuses of Douglas College, while many elementary and high schools in the region are also closed.

In addition to the snow, high winds have forced BC Ferries to cancel many of its sailings between the mainland and Vancouver Island and to the Gulf Islands.
