“Wintry mix of precipitation” in store for Metro Vancouver

In News by Anywhere Vancouver

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for the Metro Vancouver region Monday morning about an upcoming weather system that’ll bring snow and rain.

“A weather system brings a wintry mix of precipitation to the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Howe Sound-Whistler late Tuesday evening through Wednesday,” says the weather agency.


The precipitation will start as rain mixed with snow Tuesday evening and snowfall amounts will “vary greatly with elevation and proximity to the water”.

The mixed precipitation will change to rain late Tuesday night or early Wednesday and during this transition, there’s a “risk of freezing rain over the Fraser Valley as warm air overrides the cold air in the valley”.

The system is expected to pass across the region by late Wednesday.

“Warnings may be issued as the event draws closer and as confidence in the snowfall accumulation improve. Please continue to check the weather forecasts, and be prepared for changing weather conditions.”
