A new snowfall warning was issued for the Abbotsford area Tuesday afternoon.

Environment Canada says the Abbotsford area could see between 10 and 15 centimetres of snow.

Environment Canada warns: “Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.”

Weather forecasters predict the region could also see another 10 centimetres of snow on Thursday.

An arctic outflow warning remains in place for the entire Fraser Valley.

Environment Canada says: “Cold arctic air will continue to funnel out of the mainland inlets and valleys today producing northeast winds of 40 to 60 km/h with gusts as high as 90. The strong winds combined with cold temperatures will generate wind chill values of -20 or lower.”
