VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — The worst may be behind us here in Vancouver, but parts of B.C. are still dealing with more ugly winter weather this weekend.

In the Fraser Valley, a winter storm warning is in effect for Abbotsford, Chilliwack and East of Hope. Locals in these areas can see up to 10 centimetres fall, mixed with freezing rain and some wind, too.

Another winter storm warning is up for the Sea to Sky Highway.

Up to 20 centimetres of snow could fall in Squamish, and as the route goes further north and up to 40 centimetres could fall by Sunday morning.

There’s also the possibility of up to 25 centimetres of snow falling in Whistler by Saturday night.

And freezing rain alerts up for the Coquihalla, and Highway 3.

However, it’s quite small compared to the East Coast, where people in parts of Newfoundland are digging themselves out, after up to 70 centimetres of snow fell there overnight Saturday.

About 21,000 customers are without power despite snowfall slowing down.
