More snow for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows

Fluffy flakes start falling again

For commuters on the local roads who were delighted to be on relatively clear roads this morning, the heavy snowfall being observed outside may be a bit troubling.

While rain was expected this morning, the -2 C temperature has turned all precipitation to the white stuff.

Environment Canada’s website says the storm will continue to fall until this afternoon, with local snowfall expected to reach five to 10 centimetres.

They have also posted a snowfall warning for the Fraser Valley -west including Abbotsford.

The temperature is expected to climb back up above the freezing mark to 2 C.

Environment Canada is asking those using the roads to be prepared to adjust their driving with changing road conditions. “Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions,” the warning says, “Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.”

School District 42 schools will remain open during regular hours.

Tonight there will be a 40 per cent chance of flurries with a low of zero.
