Brace yourselves for cold weather and possible snow, Vancouver Island.
In a Facebook post, Vancouver-based meteorologist Tyler Hamilton says a cold snap is on the way to end the month of January and is predicting multiple threats of snowfall in its last week.
While Hamilton is predicting a “super interesting” week ahead, Environment Canada seems to back his weather forecast but is predicting snowfalls to happen much sooner.
According to Environment Canada’s week-long forecast, there is a 60% chance of flurries or rain showers this weekend in the Victoria area.
Their forecast says snow could begin to fall on Saturday night, as temperatures dip to -1°C at the Victoria International Airport weather station.
Late Friday night looks like it’ll be the coldest part of the week at -3 degrees.
Hamilton says Vancouver Island residents can expect more snow in the near future, even after this weekend.
While the threat of snowflakes is on the horizon, make sure to enjoy the periods of sunshine expected over the weekend.
