Snowfall warning ended for Metro Vancouver, remains for Fraser Valley

WATCH: After a short break, there is more snow in the forecast for the Fraser Valley and parts of Metro Vancouver. Grace Ke has the latest.


Environment Canada says the snowfall warning has ended for Metro Vancouver, but remains for the Fraser Valley.

Tuesday afternoon, areas saw accumulating snowfall in Surrey, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Burnaby, New Westminster and North Vancouver.

Global News meteorologist Kristi Gordon says much of Metro Vancouver saw a mix of rain and snow earlier in the day.

“Temperatures were a couple of degrees above freezing so nothing accumulated on the ground,” Gordon said.

“But then between 3 and 4 p.m. temperatures dropped and big wet flakes began to fall. By 5 p.m. a number of regions began to see snow accumulate on streets and sidewalks.”
