At the end of the little overnight snowstorm there was about 11 centimetres of snow on the ground by Monday morning.

Light flurries started drifting in at about 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 8, and temperatures dipped below zero after dusk.

There was some reduced visibility on the roads, due to the snow mixed with gusty northeast winds, said Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada.

By about 11 p.m. the storm total was at 6.8 cm of snow, and by Monday morning it was at 8.4 cm, with a total of 11 cm on the ground.

Pannett added that the snow total will go towards the Chilliwack January average of 52.8 cm over seven days.

Public schools across Chilliwack were closed first thing Monday as the city crews dug out from the latest storm.

Chilliwack school district announced Monday morning that students here would have a snow day. Unity Christian is also closed, citing heavy snow and freezing rain, as is the UFV Hope Centre.

All other UFV campuses are open.

Forecasters are saying more flurries could be coming either Monday night or Tuesday.
