Don’t put away your shovels just yet, more snow is on the way.

According to Environment Canada, a Pacific storm is forecasted to bring snow to the Greater Victoria area, beginning this evening and continuing into the weekend. For lower coastal areas, it’s expected the snow will switch to a rain and snow mix by Friday afternoon.

By the time Saturday morning rolls around, five to 15 centimetres are expected at lower elevation and up to 25 over higher terrain. Commuters are urged to take extra caution on the roads with accumulated and blowing snow offering significant winter hazards.

The white stuff is likely to stick around, with temperatures projected to remain below normal into next week.
