Vancouver, it’s best that you stay home today, again. Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the area with an expected 10 to 15 cm of snow. Because more snow is what we need.
The E.C. issued updated its snowfall warning just after 5:00 A.M., on Tuesday morning due to a low-pressure system from Washington state that brought an “associated front” to the southern part of B.C.
But when will it end? We can expect to see the snow will decrease around noon on Tuesday on Vancouver Island and in the afternoon on the mainland.
The current snowfall warning is in effect for:
- Metro Vancouver – central including the City of Vancouver Burnaby and New Westminster
- Metro Vancouver – North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
- Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
- Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
- Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta
According to Environment Canada, this evening to Wednesday morning, southern sections of the Strait of Georgia, from Victoria to Qualicum Bay and near Sechelt could see five to 10 cm of snow.
“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways, and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow,” states the warning.
Staying indoors never sounded better!
