Overnight we experienced 15-20 cm of snow. Winter crews have been working since Tuesday prepping the roads for snow and are currently focusing on Priority 1 roads. If driving during your commute please slow down and drive to conditions.

This comes as a mix of rain, snow, freezing rain and heavy winds will be hitting the Lower Mainland from now until Friday, Environment Canada says. Their winter storm warning continues to Jan. 7, as the low pressure system hits B.C.’s south coast.
