The following alert was issued by Environment Canada
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Greater Victoria
Snow is possible today over many south coast locales….
[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Precipitation from the next Pacific front will arrive over the south coast this morning. Temperatures will be low enough that rain will be mixed with snow over communities near the coast. The major urban areas of the south coast will likely see their first snowflakes of the season. Accumulations near the coast are expected to be minimal and precipitation will change completely to rain by this afternoon.
However, where cold air remains trapped over inland regions such as Howe Sound, Whistler, Inland Vancouver Island, and the eastern Fraser Valley, the snow will last longer and snowfall accumulations are forecast. At least 5 to 10 cm is expected over Inland Vancouver Island, Howe Sound and Whistler. Over the eastern Fraser Valley snow will begin later this afternoon and continue this evening.
THE PUBLIC IS ADVISED TO MONITOR FUTURE FORECASTS AND WARNINGS AS
