Environment Canada has issued a weather alert for Howe Sound.
Residents can expect potential snow tonight and Friday. With temperatures hovering near the freezing mark, a mix of rain or snow is forecast across the region.
As is frequently the case, snowfall amounts will vary with elevation and proximity to the ocean, the agency said.
The Fraser Valley, Howe Sound, and higher elevations of Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island have the potential for snowfall accumulations to exceed 5 cm through Friday morning.
The snow is expected to change to rain near midday Friday. Strong southeasterly winds to regions near the Strait of Georgia are also expected.
More snow is possible this weekend as a series of weather systems embedded in a cool northwest flow from the Gulf of Alaska moves ashore.
Early next week, very cold arctic air from the BC Interior will arrive on the South Coast.
