Bundle up, Lower Mainland.
Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
It says a band of precipitation is forecast to roll over the region from the south this evening, with “widespread snow” expected over the Lower Mainland, and southern Vancouver Island.
Snowfall accumulation of 5-10 centimetres is possible, though won’t be distributed evenly across the region.
Global BC meteorologist Michael Kuss says the worst of the white stuff should come well after dark.
“We are going to get a band of snow it looks like developing at two or three in the morning, not a shade earlier than that and it looks like the heaviest wave of snow will come through the overnight.”
The weather office says a cold airmass that has settled over the South Coast is expected to hang around until early next week, with flurries possible at sea level.
It says temperatures are expected to warm back up to seasonal averages by mid week.
