Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for North Shore.
North Shore residents can expect cold and blustery week ahead as a transition to colder conditions begins tomorrow.
Arctic air will reach the coast by Wednesday night, and temperatures will dip below the freezing mark for most coastal communities, including North Vancouver and West Vancouver, according to Environment Canada.
Blustery outflow winds will accompany the arrival of the Arctic air, yielding wind-chill values in the -5 to -10 range.
Environment Canada is asking people who work or spend time outside to dress warmly and in layers, preferably with a wind-resistant outer layer. Travellers are also encouraged to add winter emergency kits to their vehicles which include a blanket, extra clothes and boots.
To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
