Metro Vancouver residents are sharing photos and videos of large ice floes on BC’s longest waterway this week.

While the large packets of liquid ice typically take a few days to manifest in the region, the record-breaking cold has accelerated the formation of the flakes.

An arctic ridge with high pressure over the interior of BC brought strong and biting cold outflow winds to the region, as well as snowfall during the holiday weekend. Cooler temperatures are expected this week, with Arctic outflow winds and low temperatures combined to produce wind cooling values ‚Äč‚Äčnear -20 C.

Locals began sharing photos and videos on social media of the winter scene on Monday, which showed large ice packs floating down the river.

Take a look at some of the photos and footage from across the region.
