A weak warm front is expected to move north from Washington State this morning bringing bands of light snow to the Lower Mainland and Southern Vancouver Island. The warm front will be followed closely by a low pressure system which will bring heavier snow to the area beginning Friday evening. Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 cm are expected by early Saturday morning. Later today the snow may become mixed with or change to rain at lower elevations especially near the Strait of Georgia. Freezing rain is also a possibility in the Fraser Valley on tonight.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
