Compact snow, ice on many sidewalks and roads in Vancouver's Shaughnessy neighbourhood

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – People across the Lower Mainland are waking up without a fresh coat of snow for the first time this week, although that doesn’t mean we’re in the clear.

Another snowfall warning is in effect for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, with several centimetres expected to fall in parts of the region starting later on Thursday.

Thursday morning, there was still a lot of ice and snow on the roads and sidewalks.

While the major routes are fairly clear, it’s the neighbourhoods that look untouched. Near Granville St. and King Edward Ave. in Vancouver, many streets were still covered with compounded ice and snow.

Sidewalks are hit and miss. Some patches have been cleared by people living in the area, while parts are still icy and snowy, making for a rather sketchy walk.

Things may be getting worse, with NEWS 1130 meteorologist Russ Lacate expecting snow, rain, and freezing rain in the second half of Thursday and continuing late into the night.
