The National Weather Service is predicting that cold air from the interior of British Columbia will continue to filter into the region through the end of the week, bringing with it a chance of SNOW.

“A series of weather systems will bring the potential for impactful snowfall to the area,” weather experts said.

The first significant system will arrive Thursday afternoon and night, with another possible system arriving Saturday.

Unseasonably cool and unsettled conditions will continue into next week, with lows predicted in the mid-20s.

“Saturday`s forecast will be anything but straightforward,” NOAA said. “As things stand, the end result will heavily depend on the depth of the cold air in place over the region and the amount of moisture the system brings with it. Model ensembles show a significant spread in possible snow amounts across the region on Saturday. This is heavily predicated on the path of the surface low with this system. If it moves onshore across the north Olympic Peninsula, low level southerly flow will attempt to quickly scour out the colder air and possibly result in a heavy wet snow for a portion of the area with a changeover to rain/snow mix over the Southwest Interior. If it takes a southern route, nearly all of the region could see impactful snowfall.”
