‘Chance of flurries’ for Coquitlam this weekend, says Environment Canada

An 'Atmospheric River' and dipping temperatures could lead to flurries across Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody this Sunday, according to Environment Canada

Metro Vancouver could be in for some flurries this weekend, according to the latest mid-range forecast from Environment Canada. 

After a sunny next few days over Coquitlam and the rest of the Tri-Cities, the Meteorological Service of Canada is predicting a blast of rain showers over the weekend as an ‘Atmospheric River’ originating in Hawaii hits B.C.’s North and Central coasts before weakening and slumping southward. 

By Sunday, the rain could turn to flurries as temperatures are expected to dip going into the evening. 

Should the forecast hold, that would mean snow on March 14, less than a week before the first day of spring.
