Well, Vancouver, we’re in for an interesting week of weather. According to a new report by The Weather Network, BC’s forecast is looking rainier and colder than usual, with possible “late-season snowflakes” set to appear at lower elevations. Though we doubt you’ll need your shovels, it might be a good time to bring out the warmer layers!

On Monday, April 17th and Tuesday, April 18th, snow levels are expected to drop below 1,000 metres after hovering between the 1,000-1,500 metre range. This means that some places may be on the receiving end of a mix of rain and snow, including the Simon Fraser University area and sections of Vancouver Island.

In terms of the Lower Mainland, residents can expect rainfall totals of 30 to 50 mm, according to the report.
