Snow alert posted for Metro Vancouver

Environment Canada has posted a special weather statement for Metro Vancouver, saying there is a chance it could snow Friday night.

The statement, posted Thursday, says the region may see rain possibly mixed with wet snow after midnight Friday, with “a slight risk” of freezing rain.

Environment Canada has posted a special weather statement forecasting snow to fall on Metro Vancouver overnight Friday.

The federal weather agency says a ridge of high pressure has led to a stretch of cold but sunny conditions around the south coast this week.

Locations that are sheltered from outflow winds and areas further up the Fraser Valley could remain at or below zero, the agency says, resulting in pockets of freezing rain overnight Friday and Saturday morning.

Environment Canada encourages people to monitor weather forecasts and to report severe weather to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
