Waking in a wintry wonderland: November snowfall dusts Vancouver

Did you get snow in your part of Metro Vancouver?
Vancouver was treated to an early November snowfall that stuck. Snow fell overnight Monday into Tuesday, and with cold temperatures, some managed to stick, as many locals saw Tuesday morning.

Vancouverites were treated to a late-night snowfall Monday (Nov. 7) thanks to a spell of flurries that left the city and surrounding municipalities dusted with a light blanket of white.

Across Metro Vancouver, locals shared snaps online of snow in their area. 

"Three weeks ago it was summer… the geraniums are still blooming," said one Vancouver resident on Instagram. 

"Woke up as the moon was setting to a dusting of snow this morning. Beautiful but so damn cold. A month ago we were in shorts and tshirts," tweeted a local named Mike.

Indeed, the cold is what will linger as Tuesday gets underway, though a 40 per cent chance of flurries remains in the forecast for the region early this morning. Clearing is expected later this morning, however the winds will kick in at about 20 km/h. The daytime high will reach just 4 C Tuesday and Wednesday, but currently Environment Canada does not show snow - or rain - in the seven-day forecast. 

Environment Canada meteorologist Alyssa Charbonneau told Vancouver Is Awesome that temperatures will drop several degrees below seasonal averages as an arctic outflow brings cold air into the Lower Mainland. 

Instead of wet weather, the colder, drier pattern is expected to persist through the weekend and into next week, with temperatures warming slightly heading into the weekend. 

After next week, Environment Canada calls for temperatures across the region to rise closer to seasonal averages, Charbonneau noted.
