Cities across Metro Vancouver, including Richmond, could see up to 10 to 15 centimetres of snow overnight, according to Environment Canada’s latest special weather statement.
While flurries will continue this afternoon, the next “major snow event” will arrive this evening, with the heaviest snow overnight and into Wednesday morning.
“Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations,” reads the statement.
“There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.”
The statement upgrades one issued Monday night, which called for an outflow of arctic winds that could lead to snow.
