Special weather statement in effect for:

City of Vancouver - including Burnaby and New Westminster
Metro Vancouver - northeast including Coquitlam and Maple Ridge
Metro Vancouver - southeast including Surrey and Langley
Metro Vancouver - southwest including Richmond and Delta
North Shore - including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
Very windy conditions are likely on Monday across the B.C. South Coast.

A low pressure system over the Pacific will rapidly intensify today and tonight as it approaches the coast. This low is expected to make landfall along West Vancouver Island midday Monday but there remains some uncertainty as to the precise location. Current computer weather models indicate a landfall somewhere between Estevan Point and Port Renfrew.

Very strong winds will develop ahead of the low, especially for regions just south of the storm's track. The uncertainty in the low's track presents a range of scenarios.

Scenario 1.. A northern landfall near Estevan Point would shift the strongest winds northward so that regions near Comox and Powell River would see the strongest winds.

Scenario 2.. A landfall somewhere near Tofino would produce very strong winds for almost the entire South Coast.

Scenario 3.. A southern landfall near Port Renfrew would confine the strongest winds to just Greater Victoria, southern Metro Vancouver and perhaps sections of the Fraser Valley.

There is potential for exposed coastal sections of West Vancouver Island to see speeds of 70 to 80 km/h with gusts near 100 km/h.

Other south coastal regions are likely to see winds of 50 to 70 km/h with higher gusts.

Wind warnings will likely be issued for some regions once the track of the low becomes more certain.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.tempetepacifique-pacificstorm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.

A frontal system advancing from the Pacific will result in snow developing tonight and amounts up to 5 cm are possible into Wednesday. Meanwhile a low developing southwest of the region will allow snow to reintensify over Vancouver Island Wednesday evening reaching the Lower Mainland early Thursday. Snow is expected to change to rain through the day over Vancouver Island and parts of Metro Vancouver on Thursday. Amounts are expected to be highly variable with amounts of 2 to 5 cm near the Coast ranging to possibly as high as 10 cm or more in inland areas. Amounts will depend on how quickly the warm air advances and the timing of transition to rain. Additionally there is the possibility of freezing rain with the changeover. The public is advised that roads and walkways will become hazardous and that they should stay tuned for further updates and likely warnings.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.tempetepacifique-pacificstorm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.

Special weather statement in effect for:

East Vancouver Island - Courtenay to Campbell River
East Vancouver Island - Duncan to Nanaimo
East Vancouver Island - Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay
Snow tonight and early Sunday morning.

A weak weather system will track southward off the west coast of Vancouver Island tonight spreading moisture across the Island. With a cool airmass in place, most areas should see some snow.

Along the immediate coast, significant accumulations are unlikely. However, areas away from the water and over higher terrain could see snowfall amounts approaching 5 cm before the system moves off to the south Sunday morning.

Metro Vancouver - southeast including Surrey and Langley
Metro Vancouver - southwest including Richmond and Delta
North Shore - including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
Showers, flurries and hail are all possible over the South Coast
tomorrow and Friday.

A strong Pacific cold front will approach the South Coast tomorrow morning, bringing rain for most areas. As the cold front sweeps through tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night, freezing levels will plummet and rain will become mixed with snow over higher urban communities and over inland regions. A few centimetres of snow accumulation are possible over higher terrain and inland.

Thunderstorms producing small hail are also possible tomorrow night and Friday as an unseasonably cold pool of air in the upper atmosphere settles in.

Friday will be a very unsettled day of weather across the South Coast. Look for a mix of sunny periods, showers, flurries or thunderstorms with small hail.

Special weather statement in effect for:

South Thompson
[100 Mile]
[Fraser Canyon (northern sections... ie. Lillooet)]

Potentially significant rainfall for the South Thompson, 100 Mile, and northern Fraser Canyon regions this evening.

A weak cold front will cross the BC interior tonight. Rain showers will form along this front and move through the 100 Mile, South Thompson, and northern sections of the Fraser Canyon this evening.

Total rainfall amounts up to 10 mm are expected, but may occur in brief, heavy downpours. There is also the potential for isolated thunderstorms to develop within this band of showers.

While these rainfall amounts do not meet our warning criteria, given the ongoing sensitivity in the region to rain, mudslides are possible.

Those in the area should use caution. Motorists are encouraged to consult drivebc.ca for road conditions and potential travel advisories.

Special weather statement in effect for:

B.C. North Peace River
B.C. South Peace River

Early season snowfall set to arrive Tuesday.

A cold front is forecast to drop southward out of the Northwest Territories on Tuesday bringing unseasonably cold temperatures to northeastern BC. Rain will quickly change over to snow as the front passes.

Snowfall accumulations will vary widely due to melting upon contact with the ground. Current indications are suggesting that anywhere from 2 to 10 centimetres of heavy, wet snow will fall with greater accumulations likely over the higher terrain to the west.

Those travelling through the area including Pine Pass and Highway 97 are advised to prepare for rapidly changing weather and road conditions.

As the event draws nearer, forecasts will be refined and, if necessary, snowfall warnings will be issued.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.

Frost is expected each night beginning tonight. In addition, slight accumulations of wet snow are possible following the arctic frontal passage, especially over higher terrain. Snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 cm is likely over higher elevations of 100 Mile, Chilcotin and the south Cariboo.
