    Snowfall warning in effect for:

    Central Coast – inland sections region

    Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm (3.9″ to 5.9″) is expected.

    Cold arctic air will continue to filter out of the BC Interior towards the coast through the weekend. A weather system will approach the Central Coast tonight and bring heavy snow to the region through Sunday. Milder pacific air will push inland late Sunday and lead to a mix of rain and wet snow Sunday night. Total snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm (7.9″ to 11.8″) can be expected through the region before the transition towards rain Sunday night.

    Snowfall warning in effect for:

    East Vancouver Island, Fraser Valley – east including Chilliwack, Fraser Valley – west including Abbotsford, Greater Victoria, Howe Sound, Inland Vancouver Island, Metro Vancouver, Southern Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, West Vancouver Island and Whistler regions

    More snow expected beginning tonight.

    A Pacific front reaching the British Columbia coast tonight will spread snow to the south coast. Snow will continue through Sunday. The Arctic air that has been with us for nearly two weeks will finally be flushed out by milder Pacific air. Snow will gradually change to rain beginning Sunday night. As usual, snowfall will be highly variable; 10 to 20 cm (3.9″ to 7.9″) of snow is expected before changing to rain Sunday night with the higher amounts expected inland and over higher terrain. Coastal sections of Vancouver Island may see closer to 5 to 10 cm (2.0″ to 3.9″) of snow.

    For Metro Vancouver and most south coast areas a complete change-over to rain is likely by Monday morning. From Squamish to Whistler the temperatures will remain low enough that snow may persist into Monday morning bringing possible snowfall totals of 20 to 30 (7.9″ to 11.8″) cm. For the Fraser Valley, the mild Pacific air will combine with below freezing surface temperatures resulting in snow changing to freezing rain Sunday night. Howe Sound and inland communities of Vancouver Island including Port Alberni will also be at risk for freezing rain during the change-over.

    Moderate rainfall in combination with melting snow could cause localized flooding on Monday.

    Winter storm warning in effect for:

    North Coast – inland sections region

    Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

    Cold arctic air will continue to filter out to the coast from the BC Interior through this weekend. A developing weather system over the North Coast will bring heavy snow to the region tonight and Sunday.

    Mild Pacific air will begin to push inland Sunday night and areas closer to the coast will likely see wet snow changing to rain that evening. Over more inland areas, arctic air trapped in the valleys in combination with with overrunning warm air will lead to the possibility of freezing rain Sunday night. Further north, near Stewart, snow will likely continue well into Sunday night.

    Kitimat can expect about 30 cm (11.8″) of snow by late Sunday afternoon. Terrace will likely see lesser amounts of 10 to 20 cm (3.9″ to 7.9″) followed by a chance of freezing rain Sunday night. Areas near Stewart will be harder hit with total snowfall amounts upwards of 50 cm (19.7″) by Monday morning.
