We may in fact get a white Christmas this year.

Metro Vancouver finally got its first snowfall of the year this past week, and it looks like more is on the way.

According to Environment Canada, residents should prepare for chilly temperatures and potential snowfall over the next few days.

The agency said on Friday that “the likelihood of some snow is increasing as a weak frontal system over the Pacific approaches the BC Coast this weekend, reaching Vancouver Island on Sunday”.

Therefore, “a ridge of high pressure will remain over the BC Interior into at least next week, spilling arctic air into the Georgia Basin. Around the south coast, daytime highs will struggle to rise above the freezing mark”.

This all means that Vancouver Island will see snow develop during the day on Sunday and spread to the mainland coast by Christmas Eve.

Exact snowfall amounts across every city are uncertain right now, but people are encouraged to plan ahead for unpredictable weather.
