Winter may not officially begin until Dec. 21, but people in Abbotsford got a taste of it early.

Folks got out their snow shovels on Saturday as the first snowfall of the holiday season came down on the weekend.

Car were blanketed in the white stuff and plows were making their rounds throughout the city on Dec. 4.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for the Fraser Valley stating Chilliwack and Abbotsford would expect to see between two and 10 centimetres of wet snow due to a low pressure system brushing the south coast.
