Just as the Island starts to recover from this week’s cold snap, Environment Canada has issued another snowfall warning Sunday.
Inland and East Vancouver Island, along with Greater Victoria and the Southern Gulf Islands could see up to 10 centimetres of snow starting this afternoon.
The snow should end by Sunday evening. A low-pressure centre forming just offshore this morning will move eastward onto southern Vancouver Island, spurring the weather.
Environment Canada is asking the public to be ready to adjust their driving with changing road conditions.
If visibility is reduced while driving the public should slow down, watch for taillights ahead and be prepared to stop.
