We’re only one month into fall, and already Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Metro Vancouver:


Special weather statement in effect for:

  • City of Vancouver – including Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver – northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta
  • North Shore – including West Vancouver and North Vancouver

Wintery Mix possible for Thursday night and Friday morning on the south coast.

An arctic front will arrive on the coast late Thursday bringing much cooler air. It will also give a chance of snow or mixed rain and snow to many areas. By Friday morning, small snowfall accumulations are possible for Fraser Valley and Howe Sound. In Vancouver, no significant accumulation is expected and any snow would be restricted to higher elevations.

In Whistler, rain is expected to change to snow tonight and they will likely receive 5 to 10 cm on Thursday.
