Between 5 and 10 centimetres of snow fell on Greater Vancouver during the morning commute today which created havoc on highways and bridges.

Vancouverites haven’t seen snow for at least 1,000 days when the last significant amount was recorded at the airport on 24 February, 2014.

An Arctic air mass is to blame for the snow and cold with Environment Canada showing temperatures barely climbing above freezing this week.

A weather statement has been issued indicating more snow could fall in Vancouver on Thursday.
