Bundle up – it’s going to be a very cold week on the Lower Mainland and in the Fraser Valley.
Global B.C. meteorologist Mark Madryga says we can thank some very cold Arctic air for that.
“The northerly flow – the very cold Arctic air – is going to persist for several days. For the next three days and probably four, right into Thursday, we’ll stay mostly clear. This northerly flow is going to persist, along with some brutal winds in the Fraser Valley and southern sections of Metro Vancouver from the northeast, making the wind chill a huge factor. So mostly clear and cold, and then by Friday there’s a chance of snow, and also a pretty high chance of snow or mixed rain and snow Saturday.”
Madrygo says that wind chill will be ‘significant’ for the Fraser Valley.
People heading out the door Monday morning are also reminded to be careful with the road conditions.
A number of areas in Burnaby, New Westminster, North Vancouver and Surrey are waking up to ice on some streets.
