Don’t put those shovels away just yet, Victoria.

According to Environment Canada, the Greater Victoria area could see another 5 to 10 cm of fresh snow starting Wednesday evening.

According to the weather agency, a storm system will move across the south coast of BC Wednesday night.

With ample cold air in place, this system will result in widespread snow beginning Wednesday evening and tapering off Thursday morning.

The current forecast suggests widespread 5 to 10 cm of snow is likely. However, there is the potential for locally heavier amounts particularly over the Sunshine Coast, North Shore Mountains, and parts of Vancouver Island.

Environment Canada said roughly 4.2 cm of snow fell overnight Monday.
