Snow possible for central and eastern parts of Fraser Valley

Precipitation could begin falling as snow before turning to rain, Environment Canada warns

Residents of Abbotsford, Chilliwack and the rest of the central and eastern Fraser Valley should be prepared for wet snow tomorrow.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement Monday afternoon warning that a frontal system could drop between two to four centimetres of snow near Hope Tuesday night. Areas further east could see some snow, although the forecast Monday is for the white stuff to turn to rain in those places before too much hits the ground.

“Snow levels are forecast to rise Tuesday night or early Wednesday with rain continuing,” the statement reads.
