Snowfall warning in effect for:
- East Vancouver Island – Courtenay to Campbell River
- East Vancouver Island – Duncan to Nanaimo
- East Vancouver Island – Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay
Snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm is expected.
An approaching Pacific storm will bring heavy snow and strong winds to East Vancouver Island beginning tonight.
As warmer air associated with the storm penetrates the region overnight, snow will begin to transition to rain over areas adjacent to the Strait of Georgia. Inland communities will receive the heaviest amounts as snow continues through Saturday morning.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
