Early risers across Metro Vancouver this morning were treated to quite the sight: snow.
Snow fell in the early hours of Monday (Dec. 6) across the region, and thanks to some low overnight temps, it has stuck in some places - though it won't stick around long.
Environment Canada issued a Special Weather Statement about the Vancouver snow, calling for a minimum of 2 cm accumulation with a maximum of about 10 cm at higher elevations. However, while some snow may continue to fall Monday morning, it should all turn to rain by lunchtime.
Monday's temperature will see a high of about 3 C in Metro Vancouver, with more drizzle on the way overnight, with light winds.
In the meantime, Monday's snow on the ground was met with a range of reactions from locals, from "ugh" to absolute glee.
Take a look at the snow as seen by Metro Vancouverites early Monday morning:

Only a 10 minute drive from downtown #Vancouver & 100m/325ft in elevation gain and it’s a #WinterWonderland — albeit a very wet one w/ ~2cm/1in of #snow on the ground.#ShareYourWeather #BCsnow #BCstorm #ShareYourWeather pic.twitter.com/MfrkIsReXM— Ryan Voutilainen (@RyanVoutilainen) December 6, 2021
