While areas north of Oak Bay dealt in snow today, locally the rain filled Bowker Creek and puddled on roads.
In the heavy rain, Oak Bay Police Department reminds drivers to use caution, try to avoid hydroplaning, ensure tires have good tread and inflation, scan ahead for large puddles, reduce speed and drive straight.
