There were a couple of snow scares this year already. The first was in September, when a freak hailstorm had Coquitlam residents wondering if winter came a few months early.

The second was in White Rock and Surrey in October, when yet another heavy hailstorm left people thinking winter came unseasonably early.

Now, Environment Canada is warning that the arctic front that is moving in from the prairies will bring even more snowfall than previously expected.

Areas hardest hit by snowfall will include higher elevations, the Howe Sound and the Fraser Valley.


Fraser Valley Expected To See Lots Of Snowfall

There may be some snowfall in Metro Vancouver, of up to 2 cm in higher terrain over Thursday night; however, the Fraser Valley is expected to get substantially more. The forecast is calling for approximately 5 cm of snow on Friday in that area.

Ski and snowboard enthusiasts will be happy to know that Whistler Blackcomb is expect to get a fresh dumping of up to 15 cm.
