“A second low pressure centre in as many days will give more snow to the South Coast beginning this afternoon and continuing into Tuesday morning,” reads the warning. “This second disturbance will spread snow to virtually the entire South Coast with heaviest amounts falling tonight.”

The weather agency states that the total snowfall amounts will vary across the region with 10 to 15 cm falling in most areas with somewhat higher amounts possible on Vancouver Island.
