Get your touques and mittens ready for a week of snow and flurries.

According to Environment Canada’s latest weather update, Greater Victoria could see four straight days of snowfall in the region.

While it’s supposed to be sunny throughout the week, temperatures are beginning to drop below freezing levels and the weather agency is showing snow for the next four days beginning Wednesday.

A special weather statement is in effect for BC, including Vancouver Island. The cold air is forecasted to remain for the week, the weather statement warns.

Following Wednesday’s predicted snowfall, we should see a bit of sun and clouds – enough to make those roads slick on Thursday where you can expect a low of -1.

We’ll see temperatures drop down to their lowest of -6 on Wednesday with the high climbing throughout the week to +5 on Saturday.

By Environment Canada’s predictions, the week is as predictable as a cougar in a kitchen.

Your Valentine’s Day might be best spent fireside, with a 60% chance of showers and a high of 4 degrees with a low of 0 degrees on Sunday, February 14th.
