Metro Vancouver was expecting a cold blast for much of this week, but the special weather statement has ended for Metro Vancouver.
On Sunday, Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for the week warning of a potential incoming front of arctic air.
While the South Coast will see some cold weather, it will not be as cold as previously expected for the area.
Michel Gelinas with Environment Canada says in some higher elevations, there could be some snow.
“It’s possible we could see some snowfall accumulations over the higher reaches of Greater Vancouver, especially at the higher elevations of the North Shore, and places like Burnaby Mountain and so on. But we won’t really know until we get there almost at the last minute exactly where that snow level will fall.”
Overnight lows between Wednesday to Friday are expected to dip to between -3 and -6.
On the Coquihalla, Gelinas says a full blast of winter is in the forecast – so drivers need to be prepared.
