The snow will come as a low-pressure centre approaches Vancouver Island Tuesday evening with the south Island expected to wake up to a fresh blanket of snow Wednesday morning.

“Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations,” warns Environment Canada. “Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.”

Snowfall is expected to ease by Wednesday morning.
