Environment Canada warns of snowfall on Malahat, east Vancouver Island
Up to 5 centimetres expected Friday night and Saturday morning
Vancouver Island residents living at higher elevations may experience some snow Friday and Saturday.
Environment Canada issued a weather statement Thursday morning stating that Greater Victoria, Malahat, and east Vancouver Island could receive up to 5 cm of snow in the hours leading into 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.
