The snowfall warning went away temporarily, but as Environment Canada predicted, snow did fall on parts of Vancouver Island and now another warning has popped up saying more is likely on the way.

A Pacific front moving across the south coast has brought the first snow of the season to many communities today. Wet snow will continue to fall (or redevelop) over many areas of the south coast tonight.

Precipitation is expected to re-intensify late this evening. As that happens, the snow level should lower and areas away from the immediate coast and over higher terrain are likely to see wet snow again.

Social media lit up earlier today with snow photos and videos of course. Here are some of them:
