Winter storm warning in effect for Metro Vancouver with more snow expected
Environment Canada has posted yet another weather alert this morning (January 5) for Metro Vancouver.
The warning of a winter storm comes after a January 4 alert forecasting another 10 to 20 centimetres of snow in Metro Vancouver from Wednesday evening to midday Thursday (January 6).
That's expected to make the morning commute more challenging on Thursday morning.
"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations," the national weather forecaster stated on January 4. "Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery."
Anyone using public transportation should keep an eye on the TransLink Twitter feed for the latest updates.
Roads in the region aren't as busy as they normally would be because many people are working from home. In addition, SFU and UBC are offering the majority of instruction online and B.C. public schools are only open to the children of essential workers.
