A storm that dumped 30-50 mm of snow on the North Shore Mountains, moved eastward.
20-40 mm of rain is expected for the Fraser Valley. Mild weather through the Coquihalla Highway corridor along with freezing levels rising to 1800 metres will make the snow pack unstable.

Elsewhere in the province, conditions are rated from considerable to high over the coming days as the storm moves across British Columbia.
