Saturday marks the official start to winter and it's definitely looking and feeling like it across much of British Columbia.¬†
On Friday, snowfall warnings stretched across the province, including Metro Vancouver.¬†
"A cold air mass in combination with moisture from a Pacific low pressure system is giving snow to the British Columbia South Coast," said Environment Canada in a statement early Friday.
By Friday afternoon, 10 cm had been recorded in Vancouver, 14 cm in Campbell River and 12 cm in Victoria. Snow-covered roads and slick conditions were also reported and motorists are being urged to adjust travel plans accordingly.¬†
10-15 cm of snow had been recorded in the Central Interior early Friday, with more snow expected.
An additional 10-20 cm is possible with the highest amounts occurring in the Cariboo and Chilcotin regions, EC says.
