It’s been a snow day for many in the Lower Mainland. And the rare blast of cold winter weather isn’t over just yet.

With schools on the South Coast, including Richmond, closed today among continuing below-freezing temperatures, Environment Canada issued a wind warning this afternoon for Metro Vancouver.

Environment Canada says a deep low pressure system will cross Vancouver Island tonight, ahead of low, southeast winds of 70 to 90 kilometres per hour. It says winds will shift abruptly to the southwest late overnight or Thursday morning. Winds are expected to then ease, but not before potentially causing damage. 

Snow remains in the immediate forecast before changing to a mix of rain and flurries. Thursday’s forecast is for a 60 percent chance of showers and temperature high of about plus 2. Rain is in the extended forecast with temperatures climbing to a high of plus 10 on Monday.
