Public schools in Surrey and White Rock are closed for instruction today, after snow continued to fall overnight.

Superintendent Jordan Tinney made the announcement on Twitter around 6 a.m. Monday, saying crews need time to clear parking lots and walkways at schools across the city.

Schools are closed to both students and teachers.

Langley school district has also closed schools for Monday, but all schools are open in Delta.

A snowfall warning remains in effect for coastal B.C.

“A long period of snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres is expected,” reported Environment Canada early Monday morning. “A second low pressure centre in as many days will give more snow to the South Coast beginning this afternoon and continuing into Tuesday morning.”

Environment Canada forecasts this “second disturbance” will spread snow to virtually the entire South Coast with heaviest amounts falling Monday night.

Surrey residents awoke to more than a foot of snow Monday morning, in some areas.
