Flurries in the forecast? That's right: Vancouver could see some snow this week

Sure, it's a sunny weekend in Metro Vancouver, but the forecast holds a few "chilling" details.

Vancouver could see some wet snow later this week, as currently Environment Canada's forecast calls for a chance of flurries the night of Thursday, March 9, 2022.

Sure, it's a sunny weekend in Metro Vancouver, but the forecast holds a few "chilling" details.

Though daytime highs are headed up to a forecast 10C on Saturday (March 5) and 11C on Sunday, overnight lows will stay closer to the 0C mark, getting down to 1C overnight Saturday into Sunday, this weekend.

While things will be warming up in the wee hours into Tuesday, the weather is looking to take a decidedly cold turn, dropping all the way down to -2C Wednesday and Thursday nights. And though it will be sunny with some clouds Thursday, the nighttime forecast includes a temp of just 1C and a chance of rain showers or flurries. 

That's right: flurries.
