Let it snow! Arctic front heading for B.C.'s South Coast Sunday night

It's time to trade in your umbrella for a parka: Environment Canada is forecasting snow for British Columbia's South Coast beginning overnight Sunday.

According to a special weather statement, an arctic front reaching the coast will cause temperatures to drop between five and 10 degrees below normal until Tuesday. 

Environment Canada says the front will come with cold and windy conditions as well as light snow. 

But the winter weather doesn't stop there.

Starting overnight Wednesday, a strong frontal system "will bring more significant snowfall."

Cities across Metro Vancouver say they're preparing for the forecasted snowfall. 

The City of Vancouver says 44 trucks will work late Saturday and on Sunday to salt and brine major routes. 

It's reminding residents to clear snow and ice from their sidewalks by 10 a.m. PT the morning after a snowfall, or residents could be subject to fines.
