Snow could hit the Fraser Valley Thursday night

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement

Winter is still nearly two months away, but Environment Canada is warning of a “wintery mix” set to hit the Fraser Valley this week.

An arctic front will arrive in the region Thursday night, bringing cool air and a mix of snow and rain, according to a special weather statement.

A bit of the white stuff could accumulate in the valley, from Abbotsford through to Hope, by Friday morning.

In most of Metro Vancouver, snow isn’t expected to stick around and may only fall in higher elevations.
