November is coming to a close and it is starting to show in the forecast. 

2022 has set records for droughts and lack of rainfall. This week, the skies will be gracing us with not only rain, but snow as well. 

On Monday morning, Victoria saw snowfall beginning around 9:30 a.m. and there’s a 70% chance of snow with low winds and a high of  4° celsius throughout the day.

According to Environment Canada, skies will be clear Monday night until midnight, when clouds will roll into Greater Victoria. The overnight low is -4° celsius with a windchill low of -7° celsius. 

On Tuesday, Victoria can expect another snowy morning with up to 5 centimetres of the white stuff.

“Outflow winds through mainland inlets will result in modified arctic air covering Vancouver Island this morning,” said Environment Canada. 

“This cold air will remain in place until Tuesday when a low pressure system traveling down the BC coast will spread snow to Vancouver Island beginning late morning.”

“Snowfall amounts will be variable with Inland Vancouver Island seeing the highest accumulations of near 15 cm.” 

“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.”

The snow is expected to last all day and into the evening on Tuesday, where the day has a high of 1° celsius and a low of -8° celsius with windchill. 

After Tuesday, the snow is expected to stop and be replaced by rain for the next few days.

Snow remains in the forecast later in the week according to Environment Canada. Overnight on Thursday and throughout the day on Friday flurries can be expected.

The roads are expected to get slippery with the rain, snow and icy conditions ahead. Drivers are encouraged to take extra time in their commute and drive carefully to avoid collisions.
