Other parts of the Lower Mainland are expected to see similar although somewhat colder temperatures. For example, the Richmond City Centre area could see temperatures drop to the freezing mark by mid-week, while Port Coquitlam could see them fall below zero during this time.
Although they may feel chilly, these temperatures track close to seasonal averages, which include a high of 7.8 C and a low of 1.4 C, according to Environment Canada's historical climate data.
Places at higher elevations are more likely to see flurries and local mountains could receive a dusting of snow if there is a decent amount of precipitation.
While Environment Canada isn't expecting a blast of Arctic air over the next few weeks, one could still conceivably occur before the end of winter. Matched with precipitation, it could create another major snow event.
