Snow is on the way, and if you’re a bus-goer, it could impact your route this week.
With snow coming to the island, Environment Canada is warning of potentially dangerous road conditions.
This is because this week, there is flurries and rain in the forecast with lows of below zero degrees throughout the week. With these conditions, the likelihood of ice on the roads is high.
On Monday, BC Transit warned customers of possible delays in their regular bus’ schedule.

Tuesday’s forecast specifically calls for snow through the morning and afternoon with mixed rain depending on the location throughout Greater Victoria.
Let it snow: It’s snowing in Victoria and it isn’t stopping anytime soon
“Snowfall amounts will be variable with Inland Vancouver Island seeing the highest accumulations of near 15 centimeters,” said Environment Canada in a special weather statement.
“Elsewhere, the snow should become mixed with rain overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday morning as a strong southeast flow brings milder air and higher freezing levels over much of Vancouver Island.”
BC Transit recommends riders sign up for “rider alerts” to know if their route will be affected by the delays.
