BC Ferries cancels evening sailings due to snow

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become hard to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Winter storm warnings have caused the cancellation of several BC Ferries sailings between the mainland and Vancouver Island.

Total snowfall amounts will vary across the region with 15 to 25 cm falling in most areas with somewhat higher amounts possible on Vancouver Island.

He says there is one benefit - because of the cold, the snow is fluffier and lighter than the usual heavy, wet snow that falls in Metro Vancouver.

West Vancouver Island, inland Vancouver Island, Greater Victoria, the southern Gulf Islands, the Malahat highway from Goldstream to Mill Bay and east Vancouver Island are all under a snowfall warning.

TransLink says the snow resulted in some delays in transit service across Metro Vancouver. Bus loops and SkyTrain stations were also being salted and sanded.

The weather also forced delayed sailings with BC Ferries.

According to Environment Canada, arctic outflow warnings are issued when "bitterly cold air" flows from the interior to coastal communities, creating wind chill values of minus 20 or less for six hours or more.
