In addition, they shared an image of a hail-covered bridge, along with a wet camera lens. As such, it was evident that heavy rain accompanied a hailstorm on the crossing.

Similarly, a number of other Twitter users shared images and videos of the storm. In some areas, such as some streets in New Westminster, there was heavy flooding.

The Weather Network has also released its B.C. winter forecast and it may come as a shock to some. In fact, it is looking decidedly mild overall.

The Lower Mainland is expected to see fewer episodes of Arctic air as well as fewer threats of significant snow.
