Highway cameras on the Malahat show there is snow falling, and sticking, between Butterfield Road and South Shawnigan Lake Roadon Tuesday morning.
Johnson Zhong, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, says the snow is expected to continue into the late morning with about four centimetres expected on higher elevations.
Zhong tells CHEK News in a phone interview that an unstable airmass is causing the snow at higher elevations, but it is not expected to snow anywhere except the Malahat.
The weather is expected to warm, but be rainy for the rest of the week, then there is a chance of snow for next week, according to Zhong.

On the Okotoks Drive cameras the roads are wet, but there does not appear to be snow.
This snow comes just days after the annual snow tire requirement was lifted on the Malahat.
