There is another weather warning in place for much of Metro Vancouver tonight, as a storm bringing a “mix of wintery weather” approaches the south coast.
Environment Canada posted the alert shortly after 5:30 a.m. this morning, warning the Pacific storm will bring a mixture of snow, freezing rain, rain and strong winds to the region starting late this evening.
The storm is expected to continue into Saturday morning.
And while the storm will bring the possibility of snow tonight, that will change to rain as warmer air hits the region.
But Environment Canada says it’s hard to predict exactly when the transition to rain will occur.
“There is a chance that this transition could be delayed resulting in higher snowfall amounts,” reads the weather statement.
“It is also possible this transition will include a period of freezing rain.”
However, most areas of Metro Vancouver are expected to see rain by mid-day Saturday.
Saturday will also see a high of five degrees, and the warmer weather — and the rain — will continue through next week, with highs of eight to nine degrees.
