Winter is blowing into the Lower Mainland.
There is a snowfall warning in effect for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, including most of the Lower Mainland, which starts Friday night and will continue through Saturday morning.
Environment Canada predicts there will be just two centimeters near sea level, with up to 10 cm in higher terrain. There will also be strong southerly winds developing on Saturday morning.
“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions,” warns Environment Canada. “Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.”
Warmer air will push in later on Saturday morning, allowing the snow over higher terrain to change to rain.
There will be a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with a chance of snow again on Wednesday.
