Snowfall Warning

Issued at 15:50 Saturday 18 November 2017
Summary

Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 25 cm is expected.

A strong frontal system sliding down the coast will result in snow developing over the Whistler region overnight. In the valley, rain may mix with the snow initially but as the snowfall rate increases then the snow level will drop.

Total accumulations will be at least 15 cm but over higher terrain up to 25 cm is possible through Sunday. By late Sunday, the frontal system will have moved south and the snow will ease at that point.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
