Parksville Qualicum Beach residents were greeted by snow on Monday morning (Dec. 21).

The white stuff is expected to fall through the afternoon before tapering off. Environment Canada has a snowfall warning in effect for areas of Vancouver Island’s east coast, saying that “abundant moisture associated with the low will result in very heavy wet snow” over the region.

Environment Canada reminds motorists that visibility is reduced in heavy snowfall.

“Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow,” the warning notes.

Environment Canada’s forecast calls for partly cloudy conditions Tuesday through Thursday, with highs ranging from 4 C to 6 C and rain on Christmas Day with a high of 7 C (and no snow).
