Meantime, the Howe Sound and Sea to Sky could see about 20-centimetres of snow by Wednesday morning. The Howe sound also has a wind-warning up, with strong gusts expected to develop overnight.

The Sunshine Coast shouldn’t get hit as hard, with about two to five centimetres expected on Tuesday as well. But inland parts of Vancouver Island could see between 10 and 20 centimetres by Tuesday night.
