Winter Weather Warning

From Environment Canada

Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected. A Pacific storm will reach the South Coast tonight. This storm will bring significant snowfall amounts to the above regions as cold arctic air is entrenched over the region. The snow will begin over Vancouver Island late this evening and further east overnight and continue into Friday. The snow is expected to become mixed with rain Friday afternoon or evening over low lying coastal communities. For communities at higher elevations or inland, precipitation will remain in the form of snow through Friday night. Total snowfall accumulations of 5 to 15 cm are expected over low lying coastal regions by Saturday morning with up to 25 cm over higher terrain. Strong easterly winds combined with the snow will cause reduced visibilities in blowing snow, especially in the Fraser Valley. More precipitation is on the way Saturday but will likely fall as rain for low lying region. Flurries are possible on Sunday across the region.

Drive safely!
