      After devastating floods and unseasonably warm temperatures, why not some snow?

      That could be the next chapter in the region's weird recent weather pattern, according to Environment Canada.

      On December 3, the national weather forecaster warned of a potential for wet snow overnight and through Saturday (December 4) morning in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and the Howe Sound area.

      It won't be one of those bruising snowfalls. Rather, it will only accumulate from trace amounts up to a maximum of five centimetres. 

      "Due to the trajectory of this low pressure system, areas to the south and east, such as near Chilliwack, have a greater chance of seeing higher snowfall amounts," Environment Canada stated. "Meanwhile parts of western Metro Vancouver, particularly near the water, are unlikely to see much snow accumulating."

      More snow could come from Sunday (December 5) evening to Monday (December 6) morning.
