It’s been a dreary weekend across much of B.C. as rain and snow accompanied chilly temperatures across much of the province. Most major highway passes saw accumulating snow hamper travel during the day on Sunday. We’ll catch a break on Monday, however, before the next storm moves in through the week. More on what to expect through the week ahead, below.

THE WEEK AHEAD: NICE MONDAY, COOL AND UNSETTLED BEYOND
Sunshine will return to much of southern British Columbia on Monday to finish the long weekend. High temperatures will remain below seasonal, with readings coming in around 10-12°C for most communities.
Low temperatures on Monday night will dip into the lower single digits for many, posing a risk for frost in some areas across the Lower Mainland.
More unsettled weather will return to the northern and central coasts, though, as a strong storm looks set to move into the regions Monday night. The system will bring strong winds, heavy rain and heavy alpine snow into Tuesday.
For the South Coast, showers return late Tuesday or Tuesday night, as will alpine snow, with freezing levels in the 900-1200 m range.
Temperatures will remain below seasonal all week, with unsettled weather at times late week and weekend.
