The chance of a white Christmas is increasing as special weather statements and snowfall warnings have been issued for parts of Vancouver Island.
Officials say snowfall amounts could range from 5 to 10 cm over Vancouver Island.
A snowfall warning is in place for the north and western Island, other areas of the Island are under a snowfall advisory.
Environment Canada says a weak frontal system is developing over the Pacific and is set to reach the Island on Sunday and bring measurable amounts of snow.
A combined arctic outflow could produce more heavy snow along the eastern portions of the Island.
A ridge of high pressure will remain over the B.C. Interior into at least next week bringing dry arctic air into the south coast.
As a result, daytime highs will struggle to rise above the freezing mark.
“If you have been dreaming of a white Christmas this year, your dreams may just come true,” says Environment Canada in the statement.
Officials also advise those travelling on Christmas Eve to monitor forecasts and statements for updates.
