“Environment Canada said 10 to 20 cm would fall in parts of Metro Vancouver, with as much as 25 cm possible near the North Shore mountains. Areas near the water were expected to see lower amounts as the snow becomes wet or mixed with rain with temperatures easing upward.

The weekend forecast calls for highs of about 3ºC Saturday and 5ºC Sunday, with a 40 per cent chance of mixed rain and snow Saturday and a mix of sun and cloud and a slight chance of precipitation Sunday.

Earlier Friday, the intense winter storm closed post-secondary schools and caused chaos on local transit.”—Scott Brown/Vancouver Sun

Parks look very pretty, perfect for taking photos and a nice walk. But the roads are a totally different story whether you have snow tires or not.
