      While snowfall alerts for Metro Vancouver have ended, they continue on for the Fraser Valley today (January 16).

      Environment Canada ended the snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver, including Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Surrey, and Langley, as of 2 p.m.

      Meanwhile for the Fraser Valley including Abbotsford, Environment Canada stated at 2:11 p.m. that five to 10 centimetres of snow are anticipated and bands of heavy snowfall are expected throughout this afternoon.

      While conditions are expected to improve, a chance of flurries will continue on.

      Drivers are advised to adjust to changing road conditions, and visibility may be suddenly reduced during heavy snow.

      At 2:32 p.m., Environment Canada stated that the arctic outflow warning has ended for the Fraser Valley, including Chilliwack and Hope, B.C.

      The last update for the Sea to Sky region from Squamish to Whistler, and the Howe Sound region, was posted at 4:09 a.m. today, stating that hazardous winter conditions were expected to continue, including snow flurries this afternoon, despite the winter storm departing.

      Drivers are advised to avoid non-essential travel as visibility could be reduced during sudden weather changes common in the mountains.

      Elsewhere in the province, Highway 1 has been closed for avalanche control work in both directions from Golden, B.C., to nine kilometres west of the west boundary of Yoho National Park.
