**Special weather statement**

Snow is on the way for the South Coast tonight and Friday.

Forecasters are tracking the next Pacific storm that is expected to reach the South Coast tonight. With cold Arctic air entrenched across the region precipitation from this storm will fall as snow. 

Indications are now that snow will not change to rain over low lying coastal communities until Friday afternoon or Friday evening. For communities at higher elevations or inland, precipitation will remain in the form of snow through Friday night or Saturday morning. Total snow accumulations of 5 to 15 cm are expected over low lying coastal regions with up to 25 cm over high terrain. Strong easterly winds combined with the snow will cause reduced visibilities in blowing snow tonight and Friday morning, especially over Howe Sound and the Fraser Valley.

The airmass over the South Coast will remain cool through the weekend Any snow that falls tonight and Friday will probably stick around. 

More precipitation is on the way Saturday but will likely fall as rain for low lying coastal areas. Flurries are possible on Sunday across the region. A return to cold sunny conditions is forecast for early next week as Arctic air will take a firm grip on southern B.C. More snow may come by the end of next week. 

Please watch for the snow crew working to clear and salt campus roadways, walkways and parking lots. 

Please watch for pedestrians, wildlife, road closures and areas that are currently under construction while traveling around campus.
