PHOTOS: B.C. surfaces glazed by ice after bout of freezing rain

Surfaces in parts of the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island in B.C. were glazed with ice Tuesday night after near-freezing temperatures and a low-pressure system brought a period of freezing rain.

The freezing precipitation made for rather slippery roads and dicey travel, as well as stunning photos that showed trees, roads, vehicles and other objects coated with a layer of ice.

The icy part of the current system, two lows merged as a single storm, has since ended, with warmer air moving in and transitioning precipitation to rain for the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island by early Wednesday morning.

Below is a collection of visuals that surfaced on Twitter not long after the freezing precipitation began coating roads, trees and other objects in B.C.
