“Snowfall accumulations of 5 to 15 cm are listed as quite possible, especially away from the Strait of Georgia, before the snow ends Wednesday morning. Freezing levels on Vancouver Island should be high enough to restrict significant snow accumulations to elevations higher than about 200 m.”

The warning cautions that areas outside of the City of Vancouver may face hazardous winter conditions as a result of the storm.
