There’s a chance Victoria could see a white Christmas this year, according to Environment Canada.

For most parts of Vancouver Island, a glance at the weather outside is enough to make one harbour hopes for snow this year.

And if you’re eager enough to have checked the latest weather forecast, it looks like Victoria may just be treated to flurries instead of the usual rain showers this December 25th!

Environment Canada is forecasting that the city will see mixed rain and snow on December 24th and transitioning to snow on Christmas Day.

According to the Weather Network, the snowfall could continue until at least Tuesday, December 28th.

Temperatures are expected to drop considerably next week with lows of between -2 to -8 degrees.

For an official White Christmas to be declared, Environment Canada says there must be at least two centimetres of snow on the ground by 10 a.m. on December 25th.

The last white Christmas in Victoria was in 2017.
