Snowfall WarningIssued at 07:50 Friday 09 December 2016
Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm is expected.
A band of snow is moving across the South Coast this morning and has brought a trace of snow to much of Metro Vancouver. In areas over the Fraser Valley there have been several cm and over 5 cm over much of the Island. Snow is changing to rain over West Vancouver Island this morning as milder air gradually makes its way eastward and the snowfall warning is ended. Snow levels will rise slightly this afternoon and snow will change to rain near sea level with amounts of 2 to 4 cm possible before the transition. Meanwhile further amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected in the Fraser Valley and over higher terrain through Saturday morning. In addition strong easterly winds combined with the snow will cause reduced visibilities in blowing snow, especially in the Fraser Valley today.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
