If you woke up thinking it was extra chilly outside…you were right.
Turns out this Wednesday morning is the coldest one across the Lower Mainland in 2016 since early January.
Global News Meteorologist Mark Madryga says it was close to being the coldest morning all year.
“Looks like it dipped briefly to -5.8 this morning, the lowest Airport temp since January 2 when it was -6.5. Previous to that it wasn’t that cold since -6.1 degrees Dec. 1, 2014!”

This follows Metro Vancouver’s first snowfall of the season.
The snow and slush caused commuter headaches with cars stuck in traffic, “ice bombs” on both the Alex Fraser and the Port Mann Bridge, as well as multiple fender-benders due to ice.
The second round of snow is expected to hit Thursday evening and into Friday morning.
Madryga says snow accumulation will be significant.
