Just as the forecast predicted, Metro Vancouver woke up to a fresh snowfall Sunday morning, with more snow on the way.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Coastal British Columbia, with 5 to 10 cm expected.

A low pressure system offshore is producing bands of snow over the inner South Coast. Snow is expected to ease this afternoon.

However, scattered flurries or showers will persist for the remainder of the day. Storm totals so far range from 5 to 20 cm. An additional 5 cm is possible for the remainder of today.

The low will cross the inner south coast tonight, bringing another round of snow to the region later this evening. Again, snowfall amounts will be highly variable.The highest amounts are expected over higher elevations of Metro Vancouver and Western sections of the Fraser Valley.

Areas affected by the bands of snow can expect 5 to 15 cm by Monday morning adds the alert.

Let’s hope this snowfall doesn’t turn Vancouver upside down, again.
