More windy weather is in the forecast for Greater Victoria after a day of blizzard-like conditions hit the region earlier this week.
Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for Victoria as a Pacific storm approaches the south coast of British Columbia.
Intense winds of 60 km/h gusting to 80 km/h will rise on Friday evening and last until Saturday morning.
Earlier today, the weather authority issued similar alerts for the rest of Vancouver Island.
Southeast winds will increase up to 80 km/h this evening, diminishing on Saturday morning for the western part of the island.
Meanwhile north Vancouver Island is in for winds of 90 km/h increasing to 110 km/h for exposed coastal areas on Friday evening.
Snowfall advisories have been issued for inland Vancouver Island and east Vancouver Island from Courtenay to Campbell River, Duncan to Nanaimo, and Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay. These areas can expect 10 to 15 cm of snowfall accumulation.
Snow will be accompanied by strong winds on the eastern part of the island, starting tonight and abating by Saturday morning.
