Metro Vancouver Weather Forecast

According to the statement, wet snow is possible inland and over higher terrain today. An approaching Pacific frontal system will spread precipitation over Metro Vancouver Tuesday.

The cool air mass currently over the South Coast means that snow levels are low enough that rain will likely be mixed with snow over higher terrain and inland locations.

Current indications are that snowfall accumulations, if any, will be minimal.

Snow levels are forecast to rise tonight over Metro Vancouver with rain continuing tonight into Wednesday.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada for the Metro Vancouver weather forecast.
