The B.C. coast is expecting another major low pressure system Thursday, bringing at least a chance of snow to the entire province.

The system will hit Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast beginning Thursday morning and will spread into the Sea-to-Sky corridor and Metro Vancouver by late morning.

Higher elevations of Metro Vancouver could see anywhere from 2-10 cm of snow. Meanwhile, the precipitation will be rain across lower elevations but has the potential to transition to snow or wet snow for a period of time, sometime between 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday.

If that transition to snow occurs, the precipitation will likely be very heavy, so the snow or slush could accumulate quickly. Conditions on the roads could be dicey for a period of time.

But the snow won’t last long. Temperatures warm up across the entire South Coast late tomorrow evening and the rain will wash it all away.
