Snowfall expected for southern Vancouver Island by Friday


Make sure to get outside today and enjoy some of that blue sky and glorious sunshine – it’s going to be a little while before seeing it again.

Snow is in the forecast beginning Friday, thanks to a weak warm front that is expected to move north from Washington State.

That shift is a low-pressure system which has the potential to bring heavier snow to the area Friday night into Saturday morning.

Snowfall amounts in excess of 5 centimetres are possible over certain regions from Friday afternoon into the evening,” Environment Canada said in a release.

The snow will likely switch over to rain or mixed rain and snow on Saturday as milder Pacific air moves in.

A second storm is forecasted for Sunday which will also bring snow and rain to the region.
