Classes back in today in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows

Side streets slippery however

It’s back to class today, Wednesday, for kids in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

School District 42 announced this morning that schools are open.

“All regular buses are on snow routes. Please drive with care on side roads, as some are slippery this morning.”

Students in both cities got a snow day on Tuesday after snow clogged routes made it tough for school bus drivers to get in.

Meadowridge School is also open. All buses are running with bus No 2 on the designated snow route, Meadowridge said.

More snow fell overnight in Metro Vancouver leading to a slippery commute. The West Coast Express train number four into Vancouver, was also delayed by about 20 minutes at Port Haney station.

Relief is on its way however. The snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver has ended athough there is still a chance of flurries on Thursday with a high of 2 C. There’s a chance of rain or snow on Friday with a high of 4 C.

An arctic outflow wind warning is in effect for Whistler and the Sea to Sky Highway between Squamish and Whistler. “Overnight temperatures near -12 C and winds up to 30 km-h will generate wind chill values near – 20 C tonight through the Whistler region and Sea to Sky corridor,” says Environment Canada.
