Metro Vancouver forecast calls for accumulation of snowfall this week

The Vancouver weather forecast has been calling for snowfall this week, but a recent update predicts that the region will receive more snow than previously expected.

Yesterday, Environment Canada forecasted that Thursday had a 30 per cent chance of flurries or rain showers during the day, with Thursday night seeing a 60 per cent chance of flurries. Following this, Friday had a 60 per cent chance of flurries or rain showers during the day.

As of Feb. 6, the forecast calls for a 40 per cent chance of flurries on Thursday night. Following this, Friday’s forecast calls for periods of snow all day long. As a result, there is a much higher likelihood that the snowfall will accumulate.

In fact, the forecast states that most areas “will receive at least a few centimetres of accumulation by late Friday.” With this in mind, particular areas, such as the Fraser Valley, will receive the greatest amount of snowfall.

The forecast also calls for Sunday to see cloudy periods with a 60 per cent chance of flurries during the evening.

What’s more, the forecast states that there will be “bitterly cold arctic outflow winds Friday night and Saturday.”
