Passengers were recording hours of waiting time to get on to SkyTrain platforms and on trains Monday morning.

Environment Canada has issued a new snowfall warning for the South Coast.

Global News meteorologist Mark Madryga says the next round begins Monday afternoon and evening.

“We have a nice break between the major snowstorm of yesterday, last night, and another one coming,” Madryga said on Monday.

“The one coming later today and tonight won’t be quite as intense, but watch out,” he said on Monday.

The snow is expected to hit the Greater Victoria area early in the afternoon and then Metro Vancouver between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
