Models are getting into some sort of agreement once again that we'll see some more Arctic air next week.

Pretty rare for us to get 2 of these events in a season let alone so close together.(Not to jinx it)

All starts around 144hr.

This is a warning that significant snowfall is expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.

This approaching low pressure system will bring very strong winds to Haida Gwaii tonight. Winds will rise to southeast 70 to 100 km/h this evening and ease Tuesday morning.

The system will also bring snow to Vancouver Island on Christmas day. 15 cm of snow are forecast for Inland Vancouver Island. 10 cm of snow are expected over the higher terrain of East Vancouver Island, especially over northern sections.

Please refer to the latest public forecasts for further details.

Just thought I'd create a place for us western-ers to chat about the coming winter since everything is else is "East" related.

Let's start with the awesome weather coming up. We need more rain right? HA

From EC:

WOCN11 CWVR 162233
Special weather statement issued by Environment Canada at 2:33 PM PST
Friday 16 November 2012.
Special weather statement for:
=new= Metro Vancouver
=new= Greater Victoria
=new= Fraser Valley
=new= Howe Sound
=new= Whistler
=new= Sunshine Coast
=new= Southern Gulf Islands
=new= East Vancouver Island
=new= West Vancouver Island
=new= Inland Vancouver Island.

Storm cycle setting up across Southern British Columbia.

Copious precipitation is expected over the South Coast of British
Columbia beginning this evening. A mild and moist southwesterly flow
is setting up over the Eastern Pacific. The first in a series of
storms will make landfall this evening resulting in wet and windy
conditions. A second more vigorous impulse will reach the South
Coast Sunday night delivering more heavy rain. The storm cycle
continues on Tuesday with yet another strong storm expected.

Total precipitation amounts from this evening until Monday range from
60 to 150 mm with the highest amounts expected over the north shore
mountains and Howe Sound. Strong southeast winds up to 80km/h are
expected along exposed coastal regions with the passage of each
storm. Freezing levels will fluctuate from 1000 to 1800 meters over
the weekend. A slight cooling trend is expected on Sunday before the
arrival of the next storm.

There remains some uncertainty with regards to the exact location of
the heaviest rainfall amounts. Rainfall warnings, wind warnings, and
special weather statements for snowfall over the mountain passes may
be issued as the track of the systems and the associated freezing
levels become more certain.

Updates and further information this statement will be updated within
12 hours if necessary or replaced by a weather warning.

The public is advised to closely follow the forecasts and warnings
issued by Environment Canada.
