Snow and cold expected on Vancouver Island this week

Snow and cold expected on Vancouver Island this week

The odds for snow being on the ground in Richmond during Christmas will surely have tumbled with some of the white stuff expected to fall locally on Tuesday and Thursday.

The system will move in from Washington State, bringing a mix of rain and snow overnight into Tuesday. Cold air is expected through the end of the week, with temperatures on Friday dropping to minus 5 and minus 10 across the south coast during the day, with highs on Saturday just barely reaching the freezing mark.

Those living in the area or driving through are warned that weather in the mountains can change suddenly, and to be prepared for deteriorating travel conditions.

"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel hard over some locations", Environment Canada said.

Some Vancouver Island residents should brace for snow after Environment Canada issued a weather statement Monday morning. Significant but lesser amounts of snow are expected in Castlegar.

In the Fraser Valley, the snow level will fall to near sea level by Tuesday afternoon, according to Environment Canada.

East Vancouver Island and Victoria will likely be the snowiest regions across the South Coast on Tuesday, though much of it will likely melt by Wednesday.

Environment Canada has a winter storm watch in effect for the West Kootenay, Boundary, Kootenay Pass and Elk Valley.
