Environment Canada: Vancouver Island will be hit with more heavy snow storms

Environment Canada is forecasting that possible “heavy convective snow flurries” will hit parts of Vancouver Island on Tuesday, bringing sudden reductions in visibility throughout the day.

According to the weather agency, snow could also accumulate quickly on roads and walkways due to the flurries.

“Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast remain under the influence of an unstable airmass,” reads a statement from the agency. “This will produce pockets of flurries today. Some of these pockets may produce short bursts of heavy snow.”

Environment Canada warns that sudden flurries could strike Vancouver Island in the morning and afternoon.

Fanny Bay, Duncan and Gibsons are all included in the special weather statement.

The weather agency advises Island residents to be ready for sudden changes in road conditions or sudden decreases in visibility.

“If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance,” adds the weather statement.
