Temperatures will hover around freezing, creating a risk of slippery conditions on local roads and possible freezing rain. The system is likely to sweep in right around the time of the evening commute.
The weather agency describes its predictions about how much snow will fall and accumulate as “uncertain” because of variables like rate of precipitation, wind strength and humidity.
But it said there will be “significantly less snow than Tuesday’s event,” which left commuters in hours-long traffic snarls all across the Lower Mainland.
On Vancouver Island, there’s also a wind warning in effect for Greater Victoria and a snowfall warning along the Malahat and up the eastern coast to the Comox Valley. Five to 15 cm are expected depending on elevation and proximity to the water, with communities away from the coast likely to get more snow.
