Wet snow is expected to fall around sea level but snow accumulation will likely be around 100 metres in elevation.

In Metro Vancouver, five to 10 cm of snow is expected, with Howe Sound expecting around 15 cm and Chilcotin around 10 to 20 cm.

B.C. drivers are warned that driving conditions can rapidly change with the incoming snow.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving to changing road conditions,” Environment Canada said.

“If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.”

Snowy conditions are expected to last into Sunday morning as well.
