Special weather statement for Metro Vancouver:


Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Metro Vancouver - central including the City of Vancouver Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver - North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
  • Metro Vancouver - northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
  • Metro Vancouver - southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver - southwest including Richmond and Delta

Highly variable snow amounts over Metro Vancouver.

What: 2 to 4 cm, locally near 10 cm, of snow is expected across Metro Vancouver.

When: This afternoon through Tuesday morning.

Why: There is a small scale low pressure system near Vancouver Island which will cause bands of flurries to cross the Metro Vancouver area overnight and Tuesday morning. The precipitation will be convective, and snowfall amounts will be highly variable by location. In addition, elevation and proximity to the ocean will affect snowfall amounts. Most locations can expect 2 to 4 cm. Some locations may receive none, while others receive near 10 cm.

The morning commute will likely be affected. Prepare for rapidly changing weather conditions and stay up to date with current forecasts at weather.gc.ca or use the official Environment Canada app WeatherCAN.


Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
