Special Weather Statement

Issued at 11:50 Wednesday 07 December 2016

More snow on the way for the South Coast beginning Thursday evening.

With cold Arctic air entrenched across the South Coast, an intense Pacific storm will bring significant snowfall beginning Thursday evening.

Strong easterly winds combined with the snow will reduce visibilities
at times Thursday night and Friday.

On Friday snow in low lying coastal communities will probably change to rain. However, for communities at higher elevations or inland, precipitation will remain in the form of snow.

A significant influx of milder Pacific air is not expected this weekend and a mix of of rain and snow is forecast across the south coast Saturday and Sunday. More snow is possible next week, too.

With no significant warming trend in sight, any new snow will likely remain on the ground for several days.

As the storm details become clearer, this statement will be updated and may be upgraded to a weather warning.
