Metro Vancouver weather forecast

Snow: the four letter word that can either send you into a frenzy of frustration or brighten up your holidays.

In Vancouver, there is no shortage of celebration going on this time of year. Winter festivals like Aurora  the Vancouver Christmas Market and Christmas in the Village are bound to put even the grinchiest of Grinch’s in a festive mood.

However, when it comes to snow in Vancouver, there’s a line drawn between those who want it and those who don’t.

Depending on where you stand, you’ll either be delighted or disappointed to hear, Vancouver has a 10 per cent chance of having a white Christmas.

Environment Canada compiled data from 1955-2017 to come up with the number, analyzing snowfall records dating back years.

Vancouver came in last, followed by Victoria with an 11 per cent chance of seeing snow.

Iqaluit and Whitehorse topped the list with a 100 per cent chance.

It’s no secret that our city hasn’t been the best prepared for Old Man Winter’s grip, back in February, Richmond saw 22 collisions in just 24 hours.

So, are we the lucky ones in Vancouver or are the people in Whitehorse and Iqaluit?
