It may be rainy right now, Victoria, but we could get some slushy snow very soon!

According to Victoria’s weather forecast, we can expect periods of wet snow mixed with rain throughout Monday. This will eventually turn back into rain which will continue throughout the week. 

Southeast winds ranging from 20 km/h to 40 km/h can also be expected until late this afternoon.

The snowfall warning for Greater Victoria ended Monday morning.

Environment Canada has extended the snowfall warning for the Malahat from Goldstream to Mill Bay.

According to the weather agency, North, East and West Vancouver Island could see anywhere from 5 to 15 cm of snow throughout Monday. Inland areas could see up to 25 cm. 

Depending on the location, the snow will gradually transition to rain or wet snow mixed with rain early this afternoon. 

The snowfall is expected to continue into Monday afternoon.

Currently, snowfall warnings are in effect for Courtenay to Campbell River, Duncan to Nanaimo, Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay and Malahat from Goldstream to Mill Bay.
