Most of Metro Vancouver was spared from an anticipated dose of snow yesterday, but Environment Canada says we’re not out of the woods just yet.
A special weather statement renewed this morning indicates the region could see between two and five centimetres of the white stuff overnight, with Greater Victoria and the Southern Gulf Islands seeing similar amounts of snowfall.
Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Fraser Valley, including Abbotsford and Chilliwack, with 5-10 centimetres expected.
The weather agency says mixed precipitation, starting as rain, should roll in sometime this evening as a weather system moves down from the North Coast. It’s expected to change to snow overnight and taper off Sunday morning.
And that might not be the end of it.
Environment Canada says a second system looks set to roll down from the north on Tuesday bringing the potential for more snow.
It says warmer Pacific air should blow in Wednesday bringing rain.
