Two to 10 centimetres of snow could fall on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, the Lower Mainland and Howe Sound Sunday night into Monday morning.

 

The next system will move over the South Coast Sunday evening into Monday morning. The concern will be the potential to impact the morning commute. Snow could be mixed with rain and looks to taper off Monday morning.
