Places like Hope and Chilliwack have been hit the hardest with 70+ cm reported so far.

"Roof collapses can become a concern with these accumulations," says The Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.

Snowfall warnings remain in effect for Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and the Kootenays.


QUICK FACTS:

  • Considerable to high avalanche risk in southern areas.
  • Next system to arrive Thursday, with wet snow/mixing to start before a transition to rain.
