When will the weather warnings end?

Environment Canada has issued another weather alert for Greater Victoria, this time it’s a winter storm watch. 

According to the alert, Greater Victoria could see 10 to 20 cm of snow starting Wednesday night and continuing into Thursday. 

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult in some locations and is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. 

As in the past few days, surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. 

In Victoria, temperatures have been rising above freezing levels during the day leading to snow melt, and as the temperatures drop to freezing in the evening, roads become covered with black ice.

The alert affects Metro Vancouver, Greater Victoria, Fraser Valley, Howe Sound, Sunshine Coast, Southern Gulf Islands, East Vancouver Island, Inland Vancouver Island, Sea-to-Sky Highway and Malahat Highway.

Police across the region have been issuing black ice warnings following the death of an 18-year old man in West Shore
