La Nina winter not finished with Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island
British Columbia’s south coast can expect additional and more localized blasts of unseasonable winter weather through Monday and Tuesday even though Environment Canada cancelled its special weather statement for the region Sunday.
“We’re not totally out of the woods in the snow forecast in the next couple of days,” said Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.
The storm that walloped Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland Saturday delivered deep snowfall at higher elevations, with Squamish recording the deepest dump at close to 50 cm and locations such as North Vancouver and West Vancouver were not far behind at 40 cm.
“We had Surrey, reports in and around Surrey close to 30 cm of snow,” Hamilton added.
However, strong winds that blew off that Pacific low Sunday morning ushered in the “instability” that Hamilton said will keep highways crews and public works departments on their toes.
