Wet snow continues to fall over much of the South Coast Sunday morning, with Environment Canada predicting that up to 10 additional centimetres will fall on areas at higher elevations.

Between two and five centimetres of snow is expected to fall on low-lying areas of East Vancouver Island, Inland Vancouver Island, Greater Victoria, the Southern Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast, Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.

The South Coast snowstorm began Saturday morning after cold winds from the east teamed up with a warm storm front that slid over Haida Gwaii Friday.

A snowfall warning was in effect Saturday for Greater Victoria, the east side of Vancouver Island and the Southern Gulf Islands, where between 10 centimetres and up to 20 centimetres of snow was expected, though unofficial totals recorded as of 5:38 p.m. PT Saturday fell under predicted values.
