Winter storm warning in effect for:
Inland Vancouver Island
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.
Light snow has developed over Northwest Washington and is spreading northeast. Snow will develop over much of Southwest BC this afternoon and intensify with the heaviest amounts expected into the evening.
As the warm air establishes itself, there will be a good chance of freezing rain followed by significant rainfall overnight and into Thursday.
The transition to rain is expected earliest along the immediate coast. Further inland, snow will persist longer and the risk of freezing rain will increase. As a result, snowfall amounts will vary considerably across the region, from 5 to 15 cm near the coast to 20 cm or more inland.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet reports to #BCStorm.
