Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Last week, the Vancouver weather forecast called for bright sunshine and low temperatures. Now, the forecast calls for bright sun all week and a chance of snow on the weekend.

Beginning on Monday, Dec. 3, the forecast calls for bright sun and a high of seven degrees. During the evening the temperature drops down to minus one, and reaches a high of four degrees on Tuesday.

Temperatures remain fairly consistent through the week, with bright sunshine during the day. With that in mind, temperatures are expected to fall to a chilly minus four degrees on Thursday night.

On Saturday, Dec. 8, the forecast calls for a high of five degrees during the day with a 60 per cent chance of flurries.

On Friday, Nov. 30, a freak storm passed through Metro Vancouver late in the morning and caused a number of commuter delays. Following the storm, however, the rest of the weekend was sunny and dry.

The Weather Network has also released its B.C. winter forecast and it may come as a shock to some. In fact, it is looking decidedly mild overall. The Lower Mainland is expected to see fewer episodes of Arctic air as well as fewer threats of significant snow.
