New snowfall warning for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley

ISLAND, B.C- The snow along Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast should calm down today.

The snowfall warning first announced Sunday and renewed for two more days is finally over, but flurries are still in the forecast, it turns out.

"Further accumulations of 5 to 10 centimetres can be expected in most areas".

According to Environment Canada, the weather disturbance which brought snow to Campbell River, Powell River, and the Comox Valley is weakening, with snowfall tapering off into the afternoon and early evening.

OR defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt leaving program
Leavitt spent two seasons with the Ducks after coming over from Colorado, but he was not hired by OR head coach Mario Cristobal. When Willie Taggart abruptly left OR for Florida State in December 2017, that opportunity seemed closer than ever for Leavitt.

Snow in the amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres is expected, with the heaviest amounts falling overnight, though the agency indicated 10-15 was an average amount, with higher amounts possible along the island.

While the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district had initially announced their schools would be open, district officials quickly reversed the decision and said their schools would also close for a snow day.

Runway conditions on Tuesday morning were "bare and wet which is optimal for takeoffs and landings".

This page will be updated as the day continues.
