There was a light dusting of snow on the Malahat this morning and snow in many areas north while Victorians continue to battle stormy weather with another wind warning in effect for the capital region.
Environment Canada says westerly winds gusting to 90 km/h will develop early this morning.
“Strong westerly winds have developed over Greater Victoria this morning in the wake of a low pressure system that moved inland,” according to Environment Canada’s website. “The strongest winds can be expected near Juan de Fuca Strait where wind gusts of 90 km/h are forecast.”
The winds are expected to diminish this afternoon as the low moves further inland.
Meanwhile, the snowfall warning associated with this system and issued last night for East Vancouver Island has ended.
Rain and showers are forecast for Greater Victoria the rest of the week.
Snow accumulations of between five and 15 centimetres were forecast for the Nanaimo region. By early Monday, about 15 centimetres of snow accumulation was already reported in the Comox area, Environment Canada said.
