One last blast of winter tonight for the Valley before temperatures on the rise

A snowfall warning is in effect Friday including east Vancouver Island.

Just as the Comox Valley is beginning to dig out from a wintry week of weather, residents should get ready for what may feel like yet another blast of winter’s wrath.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for coastal British Columbia Friday morning including east Vancouver Island beginning tonight.

An approaching Pacific storm will bring heavy snow and strong winds to the Comox Valley.

As warmer air associated with the storm penetrates the region overnight, snow will begin to transition to rain over areas adjacent to the Strait of Georgia.

Inland communities will receive the heaviest amounts as snow continues through Saturday morning.

Total snowfall accumulation of 10 to 15cm is expected. Local blowing snow is also expected, with winds southeast 30 to 50 km/h increasing to 50 to 70km/h late this evening.

The good news for those who want a return to normal temperatures this month is that temperatures are expected to rise throughout the weekend and into next week. On Saturday, the high is expected to reach 7C, and 8C on Sunday and Monday, with rain or showers throughout the week.

The lows throughout the weekend and into next are not supposed to dip lower than 3C.
