Break out the snowshoes.

The South Coast is going to get a blast of the white stuff, beginning tomorrow.

A weak warm front is expected to move north from Washington State on Friday morning bringing a band of light snow to the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island during the day, says Environment Canada in a statement.

“The warm front will be followed closely by a low pressure system which has the potential to bring heavier snow to the area Friday night into Saturday morning.”

Snowfall amounts in excess of five centimetres are possible over some areas from Friday afternoon into the evening. The snow will likely switch over to rain or mixed rain and snow on Saturday as milder Pacific air invades the area.
