Heavy snow misses most of B.C.'s south coast

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 26 Jan, 2021
  • Heavy snow misses most of B.C.'s south coast

A weekend of Environment Canada warnings about snow over the south coast of British Columbia produced very little of the white stuff and all warnings except the one covering Metro Vancouver have now been lifted.

But the weather office says up to five centimetres of snow is still likely for higher elevations of North and West Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam and Maple Ridge.

Other areas of the Lower Mainland can expected to see rain or occasional sleet through the day, but little or no snow on the ground.

Environment Canada had been calling for as much as 15 centimetres in some south coast regions by Monday morning.

Parts of eastern Vancouver Island, higher areas of Greater Vancouver and the eastern Fraser Valley reported modest accumulations over the weekend.

Snow also covered highways leading into the southern Interior early Monday, but no warnings or advisories were posted.
