Snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver tonight
A vigorous frontal system arriving tonight will bring yet another round of wintry weather to much of the South Coast. The relatively cold air that is already in place will ensure that much of the precipitation will fall as snow especially over higher elevations. Over areas near sea level, the snow will likely be wet and may be mixed in with rain giving lower accumulations. The precipitation is expected to switch entirely to rain tomorrow morning over most regions except Howe Sound and Fraser Valley where the snow could persist to late tomorrow. Total snowfall amounts for the event are forecast in a 10 to 20 cm range.
Motorists and pedestrians should exercise extreme caution and alter travel plans accordingly where snowfall warnings have been issued. Untreated surfaces will be slippery, resulting in treacherous travelling conditions.
