Wet snow is possible Dec. 25 and on Boxing Day with accumulations likely over higher terrain from Fanny Bay to Nanoose Bay.

Still dreaming of a White (but wet) Christmas?

Wet snow possible tonight and on Boxing Day

Special weather statement in effect for Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay:

Wet snow is possible tonight and on Boxing Day with accumulations likely over higher terrain.

Snowfall amounts exceeding five centimetres are possible over higher terrain, and may impact roadways connecting numerous communities throughout the island.

Low elevation areas away from the immediate coast may also see brief periods of wet snow during heavier precipitation Wednesday morning.

Along the immediate coast strong southeast winds off the Strait should keep conditions warm enough for rain.

The bulk of the precipitation will ease by noon on Boxing Day for Vancouver Island.
