UPDATE: No snow for Metro Vancouver this week

Fraser Valley, Howe Sound still expected to see some snow

Despite earlier fears, there’s no snow on the horizon for Metro Vancouver, according to Environment Canada.

On Monday, the agency had forecasted a slight possibility of snow across the whole Lower Mainland.

A slushy mix of rain and snow is still expected to hit the Howe Sound and the Fraser Valley as early as Tuesday night

In a special weather statement issued Monday, the agency says a slow-moving cold front accompanied by bands of moisture will move into the region Tuesday and continue into Wednesday.

It’s not yet clear when flurries could fall again, but higher elevations, along with parts of Howe Sound and the Fraser Valley, are the most likely to see snow over the coming days.

Much of Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley were covered in snow just last week.
