Alerts in Effect
Special Weather StatementIssued at 17:37 Friday 03 December 2021
Potential for wet snow overnight through Saturday morning.
Locations: Howe Sound, Fraser Valley, and Metro Vancouver.
Snowfall Accumulations: Trace to up to 5 cm.
Time span: Overnight and Saturday morning.
Remarks: A low pressure system brushing the south coast will bring a chance of wet snow to the Fraser Valley, Howe Sound, and Metro Vancouver.
Across the region, snowfall amounts will vary from trace to up to 5 cm. Due to the trajectory of this low pressure system, areas to the south and east, such as near Chilliwack, have a greater chance of seeing higher snowfall amounts. Meanwhile parts of western Metro Vancouver, particularly near the water, are unlikely to see much snow accumulating.
Another round of snow is possible Sunday night into Monday morning.
