"The second disruption on the southwest coast of the island of Vancouver stretches out across the entire southern coast this morning," she told Environment Canada in a snowfall warning. "In most areas one can expect further accumulations of 5 to 10 cm. Snow will fall gradually this afternoon until early evening when the lower center is weakening."
Snow forced most of the regional and university colleges to close, as well as public schools in the region.
