Special Weather Statement
Issued at Wed 12:54 AM Feb. 28
Issued by: Environment and Climate Change Canada
Description


A wintry mix of precipitation is expected.

Where: Fraser Valley central - including Chiliwack

When: Now through Wednesday.

Remarks:
A weather system brings a wintry mix of precipitation to the Fraser Valley late this afternoon through Wednesday.

Snow levels will be hovering near sea level and wet snow continues to fall across the region. Snowfall accumulations are expected to vary greatly with elevation and proximity to the water. Precipitation rate will also determine if it falls as rain or snow.

With a warming southwesterly flow aloft, snow levels will rise overnight resulting in snow or mixed precipitation changing to moderate to heavy rain overnight or early Wednesday. During this transition, there is also a risk of freezing rain as warm air overrides the cold air at the surface.

Moderate to heavy precipitation will ease across the region late Wednesday with the passage of the system.

Please continue to check the weather forecasts, and be prepared for changing weather conditions.
