Metro Vancouver to endure more winter weather

The south coast of British Columbia has seen some wild winter weather in the last few days, and it’s not over yet. Another storm is expected to hit the region overnight bringing high winds and more snow.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has posted wind and snow warnings for Metro Vancouver for the rest of the day. The snow is expected to change into scattered showers and flurries on Thursday.

BC Ferries has cancelled all remaining sailings for Wednesday afternoon and evening due to the high wind warning.

Crews are out on local roads and highways clearing out accumulated snow and are asking for drivers to be careful and patient as they work to keep routes clear. Drivers are also asked to clean slow from their vehicles (not just the front windshield) and use proper tires or chains.

TransLink is advising commuters to prepare for delays as SkyTrain and bus service are heavily impacted by the weather.
