Another snowfall for Surrey possible

Snow forecast for the weekend, followed by warmer weather midweek

A small snowfall is forecast this weekend before the weather warms up next week.

Another snowfall could hit Surrey before temperatures climb above the freezing mark, and the City of Surrey is reminding residents of their responsibilities to help clear away the snow and ice.

Environment Canada is calling for a temperature of minus-two during the day Saturday, with a 60 per cent chance of snow. A snow storm hit the region last Monday morning, dumping between five to 10 centimetres of snow on Surrey streets, yards and sidewalks.

The City of Surrey website reminds that “residents and businesses are responsible under City Bylaws to clear any accumulated snow from sidewalks located adjacent to their property as soon as possible to make sure pedestrians are safe.”

Reports of unshovelled sidewalks can be sent to bylaw complaint@surrey.ca or by calling 604-591-4370 with details of the location.

Whatever snow does fall over the weekend won’t last long. Temperatures should hit a high of two degrees Sunday, and climb to a high of seven degrees Monday and Tuesday. The warm weather, combined with the rain forecast Monday through Wednesday, should melt the snow which fell during the recent cold weather.
