Environment Canada warns of snowfall in higher elevation areas of Greater Victoria

Up to 5 centimetres expected Friday night and Saturday morning

Greater Victoria residents living at higher elevations may experience some snow Friday and Saturday.

Environment Canada issued a weather advisory early Thursday morning. It stated that Greater Victoria, Malahat and east Vancouver Island would receive up to five centimetres of snow over the course of Friday night and Saturday morning.

The forecasted snowfall is the result of a strong Pacific frontal system moving into B.C.’s south coast Friday night. It will bring rain to most of the region, but it has the potential to produce snow in higher elevation areas.

Environment Canada announced Saturday afternoon that all snow would turn to rain.
