Snow way! Here's how much snow we'll see in New West

Spoiler alert: It's not a snowpocalypse.
New Westminster residents awoke to falling snow and a light dusting on the roads for the final day of January.

Well, look at that — the promised end-of-January snow actually came to New Westminster.

New Westies awoke this morning (Tuesday, Jan. 31) to gently falling snow and a light dusting of the white stuff on roads, yards and sidewalks. 

But, if the weather forecast is to be believed, it's not going to turn into any sort of snowpocalypse; in fact, the Weather Network says we'll see less than a centimetre of snow today.

Nonetheless, take care with your commute, whether that's on foot or on wheels, because the snow is expected to keep falling with a few scattered flurries this morning. This morning's below-zero temperatures (-1, with a windchill of -3) will creep into positive terrain this afternoon, when the snow will turn to mixed precipitation instead.

Wednesday is expected to bring more mixed precipitation as temperatures climb higher, bringing highs of 5C on Wednesday and back to 8C on a cloudy Thursday.

Heading into the weekend, the forecast is back to what we've come to expect: cloudy with showers and light rain, with highs of 7C all weekend.
