We aren’t in the clear just yet, Vancouver Island.

And yes, that includes the Greater Victoria area.

Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings for parts of Vancouver Island calling for 10 to 15 centimetres of snow starting late Monday morning.

The warnings are in effect for the Malahat Highway from Goldstream to Mill Bay, Duncan to Nanaimo, Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay and Southern Gulf Islands.

β€œAn area of low pressure over the Pacific Ocean will produce an intense band of snow over southern Vancouver Island,” read the Environment Canada weather statement.

According to the weather agency, 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected to fall and is expected to last into Tuesday morning.

For the Victoria area, the current forecast is calling for a 40% chance of rain showers or wet flurries late Monday morning. There will be scattered rain/snow showers in the evening before transitioning into flurries overnight.

Light snow is expected Tuesday before clearing for the remainder of the day.
