Richmond received a dump of February snow on Sunday, and Environment Canada says more is on the way overnight.
A bright sky in the morning turned grey by midday when flakes started falling over the Lower Mainland. Many residents took the opportunity to have a snowy playdate with their pups.
Environment Canada was quick to issue a snowfall warning, and updated it at 4 p.m. to say the southern areas of Metro Vancouver can expect an additional two to five centimeters in the evening.
“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions,” the weather agency said in a statement. “Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.”
The City of Richmond said Sunday evening that plows were out on the streets, clearing major roadways first.
City plows are currently working on first priority routes. To view the City’s snow response route map, visit: https://t.co/pNEyw2uvLA.— Richmond, BC Alerts (@RichmondBCAlert) February 11, 2019
Please slow down, leave generous stopping distance, turn your lights on and keep an eye out. #BCStorm #RichmondBC pic.twitter.com/wqap7aJ88D
Monday and Tuesday are expected to be snowy as well, but the sun is forecast to return on Wednesday.
