Snowfall warning issued for eastern Vancouver Island
Feb 24 2012
Up to five centimetres of snow is expected to fall on higher elevations of eastern Vancouver Island Friday morning.
Thursday afternoon, Environment Canada posted a snowfall warning for eastern Vancouver Island, calling for rain at sea level but snow higher up.
The wintery weather comes from a low pressure system approaching the coast overnight. Snow is expected to change to rain by noon.
But Victoria residents have no reason to feel smug because flurries are a strong possibility in the region on Saturday. The forecast calls for rain showers or flurries and a high of 3 C.
On Sunday, the forecast calls for a mix of sun and cloud with 40 per cent chance of flurries. Again, the high is expected to be 3 C.
The sun and milder temperatures will return on Monday, with sunshine and a high of 7 degrees expected.
