We’re not done with the snow yet.

On Monday afternoon, Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for:

  • Metro Vancouver – central including the City of Vancouver Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver – North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta

The weather agency says that some areas of Metro Vancouver could see up to 10 cm of snow beginning Monday afternoon.

“There is a small-scale low pressure system near Vancouver Island which will cause bands of flurries to cross the Metro Vancouver area overnight and Tuesday morning. The precipitation will be convective, and snowfall amounts will be highly variable by location,” says Environment Canada.

More areas will see 2 to 4 cm of snow, while others could see up to 10 cm of snow.

This next weather system is expected to stick around until Tuesday morning and will likely affect the morning commute.

Over the weekend, the Vancouver area saw around 15 to 21 cm of snow. YVR Airport saw around 11 cm of snow, while Squamish saw a whopping 40 to 49 cm.

Environment Canada’s forecast for the remainder of the week shows that some more snow could still hit the region.
