According to the statement, Arctic air has been in place over the South Coast for the past several days, and a potent storm system from the Alaskan Panhandle will head south, bringing Pacific moisture into the mix.

It’s possible that we could see 5 to 15 cm of snowfall accumulated from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday morning, according to Environment Canada.
