      There's plenty of snow in some areas of southwestern B.C.

      For example, the Sea to Sky corridor, including  Whistler, has seen a fair amount accumulating overnight, as has central Vancouver Island.

      But there's not exactly a carpet of the white stuff everywhere else.

      This morning at 6:15, Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for the North Shore and the northeast sector of Metro Vancouver, including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge.

      Up to five centimetres may fall in some areas. But within Vancouver city limits, most residents are experiencing rain.

      "A strong Pacific frontal system over the B.C. south coast continues to bring a wintery mixture of precipitation across much of the region this morning," the national weather forecaster stated. "Temperatures continue to be cold enough to keep snow levels mainly between 200 and 300 metres."
