Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver with between five and 15 centimetres expected to fall by Sunday afternoon and temperatures set to drop to an icy -5°C. “Another low pressure system with a cool air mass will bring another round of snow to the Lower Mainland beginning this evening,” the warring states. “Once again, higher elevations such as West Vancouver, North Vancouver and Coquitlam will see the greatest snow accumulations of up to 15 cm by Sunday afternoon.” Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster will see wet snow mixed with rain. Environment Canada adds that the type of precipitation seen will “depend on a number of factors, including proximity to the water, elevation, intensity and wind direction.” On Monday, Environment Canada has forecast a 30 per cent chance of flurries and temperatures are predicted to dip to a chilling -11°C. By Tuesday, the chance of flurries increases to 60 per cent and by Wednesday night periods of snow are expected. Following this, it’s forecast to snow on both Thursday and Friday throughout the day and night.
