Vancouver Island saw a real mixed bag of weather on Saturday.

Environment Canada had posted a special weather statement for parts of eastern and southern Vancouver Island, calling for anywhere from two to 10 centimetres of snow.

It snowed lightly for most of the day at higher elevations with little to no accumulation.

The falling snow began to intensify this afternoon in the Courtenay-Comox area, accumulating two to three centimetres in some places by 5 p.m.

The storm could drop as much as 10 centimetres of snow on higher elevations of the south Island this evening, including the Malahat.
