Schools are open across the region after snowfall last night ground the region to a halt.
A brief interlude of dry and mainly sunny conditions over the Inner South Coast could end on Friday as a trough of low pressure moves southwards along the BC coast, according to Environment Canada.
Moisture is expected to result in more snow, with temperatures rising above the freezing mark later into Friday afternoon. That’s when the snow will likely change to rain or become mixed with rain over most areas.

Environment Canada says expected snowfall amounts vary with the highest accumulations possibly reaching 5 to 10 cm by late Friday afternoon.
With winter road conditions, BC Transit says buses may continue to run behind schedule.
We are expecting the adverse weather and road conditions to continue causing #transit delays for the morning commute in #Victoria. Please plan ahead, leave plenty of time to get to your destination, dress appropriately, and be patient. #YYJTraffic
