British Columbians prepared for another day of stormy weather on Sunday, as a moist Pacific front pushed over parts of the province. 

"Snow in the Lower Mainland ended late Sunday morning as warmer air pushed into the region," said Monica Vaswani, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Most have seen a transition to rain, however some snow is still expected in elevated areas."

Snowfall warnings have ended for east Vancouver Island, and the system will continue as rain throughout Monday. 

Meanwhile, a freezing rain warning was issued for the Fraser Valley before a transition to rain late Sunday evening.

Snow will continue for higher elevations, where a special weather statement has been issued for the southern B.C. highway passes. An additional 20 to 30 cm of snowfall is expected by Monday morning. 

"The B.C. South Coast can expect a bit a of a break Tuesday during the day before wet weather pushes in once again Tuesday evening," said Matt Grinter, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. "Rain for the Lower Mainland and snow for higher elevations will continue throughout the week."
