Just when you thought the roads couldn’t get any worse, another dose of snow is rolling towards the south coast.
Global BC Meteorologist Yvonne Schalle says the flakes should start falling late this evening and will hit Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
Schalle says we’re due for between two and four centimetres overnight, and warns drivers to leave some extra time for the morning commute – when more snow is expected.
“It is going to taper off late in the day on Friday, but we’re totalling between 5 and up to 10 centimetres by the afternoon hours,” she says.
Schalle says the snow should lighten up in the evening, but flurries are possible.
“Saturday we’ll see a nice break but another round of snow by the evening hours, and we’re looking at rain or snow when we get ahead to our Sunday as well,” she says.
Environment Canada has yet to issue a snowfall warning.
The anticipated snow comes just as Vancouver and surrounding municipalities begin to get a handle on icy streets.
Vancouver has ramped up city crews to battle ice problems, and is offering free salt to residents once again tomorrow at 10 fire halls.
Detla Mayor Lois Jackson has also pledged to have side streets salted and sanded in North Delta by tomorrow.
