A healthy dose of early-season snowfall is hitting the South Coast of British Columbia, including Vancouver’s nearby mountains.

On Thursday, Environment Canada issued special weather statements for much of the province, calling for snowfall at higher elevations and a “modified Arctic airmass” bringing below seasonal temperatures.

“The onset of precipitation combined with falling temperatures will bring a risk of wet snow to neighbourhoods and roadways above 300 metres,” the weather agency said in a statement.

Here’s a look at North Vancouver’s mountains, many of which have been covered with snow:
