En­vi­ron­ment Canada has posted a spe­cial weather state­ment for Metro Van­cou­ver, say­ing there is a chance it could snow Fri­day night.

The state­ment, posted Thurs­day, says the re­gion may see rain pos­si­bly mixed with wet snow af­ter mid­night Fri­day, with “a slight risk” of freez­ing rain.

The fed­eral weather agency says a ridge of high pres­sure has led to a stretch of cold but sunny con­di­tions around the South Coast this week.

Lo­ca­tions that are shel­tered from out­flow winds and ar­eas farther up the Fraser Val­ley could re­main at or be­low zero, the agency says, re­sult­ing in pock­ets of freez­ing rain overnight Fri­day and Satur­day morn­ing. En­vi­ron­ment Canada en­cour­ages peo­ple to mon­i­tor weather fore­casts and to re­port se­vere weather to bc­[email protected] or tweet re­ports us­ing #BC­Storm.
