The cold outbreak over the South Coast will finally end as mild 
Pacific air and rain start to move in today... 

Many south coastal communities have had snow on the ground since 
December 5 but this is about to change. The persistent blocking 
ridge over western Canada that allowed cold Arctic air to settle 
along the coast will finally start to weaken today. This will allow 
a series of moist and increasingly mild Pacific storms to move 
onshore. 

Satellite imagery shows a plume of moisture originating near the 
Philippines streaming towards the BC coast. Rain associated with 
this plume is expected to begin today and to become heavy at times 
tonight. Strong southeast winds will accompany the storms. There is 
potential for the moderate to heavy rain to continue until Wednesday 
morning. 

Areas along the immediate coast are expected to warm sufficiently so 
that precipitation begins as cold rain. Inland areas such as port 
alberni, hope and squamish could see a period of snow or freezing 
rain to begin with as mild air moves over the entrenched cold air. 
Further inland in Whistler and along the sea to sky Highway, 
precipitation will start as snow and slowly transition to rain 
tonight or early Tuesday. 

Stay tuned to the weather as warnings for many areas are likely to 
be issued.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by 
Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to
