A storm on Valentine's Day is bringing more snow to Metro Vancouver. "Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become hard to navigate due to accumulating snow".

"Take frequent breaks and avoid strain when clearing snow", they said.

After Saturday's big dump of snow, Environment and Climate Change Canada says the Lower Mainland should brace for another winter storm today.

Some areas will see the flurries become mixed with rain late Sunday afternoon. Snowfall amount 2 to 4 cm.

Snow is expected to change over to rain in Greater Victoria and the Southern Gulf Islands Sunday evening, but elsewhere on the Island the transition to rain is forecasted to happen later, according to the federal weather agency.

Environment Canada specifically called out driving conditions on the Malahat Highway between Goldstream and Mill Bay, saying "a long period of snowfall" with accumulations of 15 to 20 centimetres is expected Sunday.

"All property owners and occupants must clear snow and ice from sidewalks around their property by 10 am the morning after a snowfall, seven days a week", states the city.
