No snow for Vancouver, but alerts for Fraser Valley, Sea to Sky regions

VANCOUVER, B.C. – While Vancouver didn’t get any snow overnight, Environment Canada is warning that the Sea to Sky Highway from Squamish to Whistler could get up to 10 centimetres this weekend.

Snow is forecast to begin overnight and continue Sunday on that highway. The federal weather agency warns that weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.

Snow is also expected in the Fraser Valley. Environment Canada has posted special weather statement for parts of the region, including Chilliwack and Hope, where up to four centimetres of snow is expected by Sunday morning.

The agency, meantime, has lifted the special weather statement for wet snow or freezing rain for Vancouver, saying the region will likely see rain on Saturday, and a high of 4 C.  And it looks like Vancouver’s minor cold snap has come to an end for now. The overnight freezing temperatures the the region has experienced over the last week will warm up to around 3 or 4 C, while rain is in the forecast for most of next week.
