Vancouver Island’s winter wonderland is not going away anytime soon.
Environment Canada said another storm is coming to the island this afternoon and continuing into Tuesday morning. A snowfall warning in effect for west Vancouver Island, inland Vancouver Island, Greater Victoria, the southern Gulf Islands, the Malahat highway from Goldstream to Mill Bay, and east Vancouver Island, from Courtenay to Campbell River, Duncan to Nanaimo, and Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay.
The weather agency said a second low pressure centre will spread snow to virtually the entire South Coast with the heaviest amounts falling Monday night. Total snowfall amounts will vary across the region with 15 to 25 cm falling in most areas with the highest amounts likely on Vancouver Island and on Vancouver’s north shore.
Officials are reminding drivers that weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
