Metro Vancouver Weather Forecast

Wednesday morning will be sunny, with winds of up to 15 km/h. As a result, it’ll feel like -14°C with the wind chill. Daytime temperatures will reach a high of 0°C.

Beginning late Thursday, a fresh infusion of arctic air will descend through the province. Increasing “moisture ahead of this arctic blast will give snow to most of the South Coast beginning Thursday night”.

Snow will continue through Friday and most areas will receive at least a few centimetres of accumulation by late Friday.

However, there is the potential for much higher accumulations over some regions. The most recent weather models suggest the areas favoured for higher accumulations will be East and Inland Vancouver Island, Greater Victoria and the Fraser Valley.

The snow will start to ease Friday night as bitterly cold outflow winds start to pour out of the mainland inlets and valleys.
