Sure, it’s a little chilly today, but it’s also the last day of blue sky and glorious sunshine we’re going to see for a little while.

Snow is in the forecast beginning late Friday, thanks to a weak warm front that is expected to move north from Washington State.

“The South Coast will experience another day of sunny skies and cool temperatures before a major shift in the weather pattern begins on Friday,” Environment Canada said in a release.

That shift is a low pressure system which has the potential to bring heavier snow to the area Friday night into Saturday morning.

Snowfall amounts in excess of 5 centimetres are possible over some areas from Friday afternoon into the evening,” the release added.

A second storm is forecast for Sunday which will also bring snow and rain to the region.

Drivers are urged to use caution while on the roads at this time, as freezing rain is a possibility in the Fraser Valley and the Sea to Sky corridor during this time as well.
