“Good parts of the Island Highway tomorrow will be restricted with visibility due to wet flakes,” said Armel Castellan, meteorologist with Environment Canada.

Victoria may also see some wet flakes in the morning, but Environment Canada says it will quickly turn to rain in mid-morning or afternoon.
