Environment Canada has issued a storm watch for the Fraser Valley that could see wintery conditions, including heavy snow followed by freezing rain, starting the evening of Dec. 22 to Dec. 24.

As freezing levels rise, heavy snow will become mixed with ice pellets and then change to rain Dec. 23 night to Dec. 24. Find out more.

This storm will create treacherous conditions on the roads and could result in local flooding. Avoid travel at this time.
