Snow hit Langley Friday morning, with the white stuff starting to come down during the morning rush hour.

Ploughs and salt and sand trucks were out on the streets of both City and Township on major routes.

There were no school closures, as there was very little snow on the ground before classes began.

District spokesperson Ken Hoff said with wet roads there weren’t expected to be any impact on the afternoon trip home for most students.

He encouraged people to check the school district’s website on Monday if more snow remained in the forecast.

Some people got out to enjoy the weather on foot.

“I just wanted to go out, because it was so beautiful,” said Bette Weresch, who went for a walk in Langley City.

Environment Canada, as of Friday morning, was forecasting between 10 to 20 centimetres for the region, with much of the heavier snow falling on Friday night.

The snow is expected to turn to rain but the temperature is expected to hover close to the freezing mark.

– More to come
