After week long stretch of snow and sub-zero temperatures, Vancouverites breathed easy on the weekend when rain brought some relief. But now another low pressure system is set to bring more snow starting this afternoon. This latest weather system could dump between 10 and 20 cm of snow around Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
“A low pressure system is forecast to approach the B.C. coast later Wednesday. Due to the recent cold temperatures, snow will develop Wednesday evening with snowfall accumulation ranging from 10 to 20 cm by midday Thursday”, says Environment Canada.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.
