The weekend snow offered Wendy Fulford a rare opportunity to ski along the White Rock Promenade. She was joined by 15-year-old Gracie, who rediscovered her inner puppy while playing in the snow, says Fulford.

Environment Canada renewed its weekend snowfall warning for southeast Metro Vancouver, including the Surrey and Langley areas.

The snowfall warning was renewed at 4:57 a.m., Monday.

“As is often the case, elevation and intensity of precipitation rate will dictate total snowfall accumulation as well as those in the path of the Fraser Valley outflow winds,” the warning said.

“Snowfall accumulation will also vary due to the timing of the transition to rain and is likely to be greater over higher terrain as the rain-snow line will fluctuate between sea level and 200 metres today.”

The warning tells travellers to be prepared to adjust driving habits with road conditions.

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Take frequent breaks and avoid strain when clearing snow.”

Several snow-related accidents were reported over the weekend in White Rock.
