Snow on its way to the Lower Mainland, says Environment Canada forecasters

Environment Canada has sent out warning that snow and cooler temperatures mean more wintery weather

The white stuff didn’t come for Christmas but snow is expected on the south coast Thursday night with up to five centimetres for some communities in the Lower Mainland.

Environment Canada has issued a weather statement that says the rainy region could see snow beginning tomorrow evening.

“While there may be a few light flurries mixed with rain tonight, the first real opportunity for widespread low elevation snow is shaping up to be Thursday night,” the national weather agency said,

Expected to be hit with the white stuff are communities on both sides of the Fraser River.

With temperatures hovering near the freezing mark, a mix of rain or snow is possible across the region and amounts will vary across the region.

While the rains are expected to return Friday, the cooler temperatures are expected to help keep the snow around on the ground.
