  • Flurries in the forecast: Snowfall warnings in effect for parts of BC

Environment Canada says it if you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and travel plans, and carry an emergency kit and cell phone.

Some Vancouver Island residents should brace for snow after Environment Canada issued a weather statement Monday morning. A bit more snow could fall Thursday but, by Friday, all we are expected to feel is cold.

Whether it will stick around long enough to see Christmas Day next Monday remains to be seen, but forecasters are now predicting a few centimetres of snow mixed with rain later Tuesday and Thursday. Snowfall amounts will vary significantly, the statement said, but eastern Vancouver Island and Victoria will be hit hardest of the South Coast communities.

Environment Canada expects much of the snow to be melted on Wednesday with a break in the weather.

In Elk Valley, the greatest accumulation is expected for Fernie and along Highway 3 south to Elko.
