More snow is on the way this weekend for the south coast, says Environment Canada.

A Pacific front reaching the British Columbia coast Saturday night will spread snow to the south coast. Snow will continue through Sunday.

“The Arctic air that has been with us for nearly two weeks will finally be flushed out by milder Pacific air,” said Environment Canada is a statement.

“Snow will gradually change to rain beginning Sunday night. As usual, snowfalls will be highly variable with higher amounts expected inland and over higher terrain.”

For most south coast areas a complete change-over to rain is likely by Monday morning. Moderate rainfall in combination with melting snow could cause localized flooding on Monday.
