Snowy Boxing Day is expected for the Lower Mainland and Sea-to-Sky parts


It's not the white Christmas expected by some Colombians on the South Coast, but Environment Canada predicts snowy Boxing Day for parts of the Lower Mainland and Sea-Sky Corridors.

Squamish builds up with a layer of snow, with five to 10 centimeters expected throughout the day, according to the weather agency.

In the Fraser Valley, Hope is also covered in snow dust, with an estimated few centimeters.

Special weather statements apply to Metro Vancouver for a mixture of snow and rain, with snow accumulation tending to higher areas – which is good news for local ski resorts.

Mount Cypress has 10 centimeters of snow in the last 24 hours, while Mount Seymour has five centimeters.

Meanwhile, DriveBC warned of snowy conditions between Merritt and Kamloops, along the Coquihalla Highway, and along Highway 99 heading north towards Squamish and Whistler.

Environment Canada says snowfall and rainfall will slow down in the afternoon.
