As temperatures continue to dip, Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for parts of Vancouver Island.

East Vancouver Island from Duncan to Nanaimo and Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay could see snow squalls bringing from five up to 15 centimetres Sunday and Monday.

The most significant accumulations may be from Nanaimo to Qualicum Beach.

The snow squalls are predicted to dissipate by Monday morning.

Greater Victoria, the southern Gulf Islands and other parts of eastern Vancouver Island are still under a special weather statement.

Environment Canada says there are increasing chances of snow, as Arctic outflow winds crossing the Strait of Georgia will create the potential for snow squalls reaching the eastern side of Vancouver Island.

Localized amounts could range from two to four centimetres.

They ask the public to continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada, as conditions may change.
