Snow could be on the ground in parts of Greater Victoria and Vancouver Island tomorrow.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for East Vancouver Island and Greater Victoria (Malahat Highway—Goldstream to Mill Bay) warning of anywhere from 2 to 5 cm of snow on Wednesday.
Snow is expected to begin falling Wednesday morning due to a Pacific frontal system that will be moving through the region, according to the weather agency.
“Freezing levels will initially be near sea level Wednesday morning and as a result precipitation will start as snow. Snowfall accumulations of 2 to 5 cm are forecast before warmer air pushes in late Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night allowing the snow to change to rain,” Environment Canada said in a statement online.
The national weather agency says higher elevations of Vancouver Island are more likely to see higher accumulations, while regions closer to sea level may not see much accumulation of snow.
