Locally, flurries of about 2 cm along with wind and a wind chill dropping the feel to – 14 is expected overnight.

A second system should reach the south coast Tuesday evening and affect a more widespread area than the first, with snow is expected for much of the night. Mainland arctic outflow winds reaching the eastern coast of Vancouver Island will create the potential for increased snowfall. The region could see 5 to 10 cm of snow Tuesday.

A third system is on the horizon for Thursday night surrounded by a fair degree of uncertainty around how it might impact the south coast. Meanwhile much of the province is under special weather, arctic outflow or extreme cold weather alerts.

However, the federal forecast system also says Victoria should expect rain as early as Wednesday.
