A special weather statement is in effect for Greater Victoria, and is expected to reach Sooke and beyond. It was issued by Enironment Canada at 4:03pm today, February 13, 2018. The weather statement reads as follows.
Arctic air has been in place over the South Coast for several days.
A potent storm system over northern Vancouver Island will advance southwards this evening, bringing Pacific moisture into the mix.
Snowfall accumulations of 5 to 15 cm are possible, especially away from the Strait of Georgia and over higher terrain, before the snow ends Wednesday morning.
Freezing levels on Vancouver Island should be high enough to restrict significant snow accumulations to elevations higher than about 200 metres.
Sooke Weather (best guess)
The Windy.com weather navigator on the SPN Weather page shows that the Sooke region may be hit with snow overnight, with snowfall starting as early as 7:00 pm.
