VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Snow is blanketing much of Metro Vancouver, and even more is on the way.
Environment Canada has put out a snowfall warning for the region: 5 to 10 cm is expected today. It’s also warning drivers to be careful on the roads as conditions can change quickly, and visibility may be poor.
Latest guidance suggest #snow tapering off around Metro #Vancouver around 10 pm Sunday. Accumulations of 3-10 cm by then. Lower end of that scale will be further inland due to supply of drier air from the #FraserValley

NEWS 1130 meteorologist Russ Lacate says the winds that led to power outages on Saturday supplied a lot of dry air to the region, making it so we didn’t see even a flake of snow. But now that’s changed as the Arctic air locks in place.
“We’re getting accumulating snow throughout this evening. It will taper off close to midnight. There could be several centimeters on the ground in many of the neighbourhoods around Metro Vancouver,” he says.
He says the snow will start clearing a bit tonight.
“There’s a risk of icy roads in your Monday morning forecast, and we’re watching the horizon for more snow Monday night and Tuesday morning,” he says.
