Snow In The Fraser Valley

According to the statement by Environment Canada, there is a bout of cold arctic air that is descending into the province.

Although the snow is said to ease Friday night, an “arctic blast” will cause a few centimetres of snow to land on Saturday as well.

Meanwhile, in Metro Vancouver, another 2 to 4 cm of snow is forecasted for Friday.

Environment Canada states, the forecast will be refined as needed, so please keep a close watch for weather alerts.
