Coastal Vancouver Island, at least the bottom half, is not a place where you expect to be greeted with a blanket of snow on Christmas morning. Oh there's usually snow on the mountains inland but it's different near the water.
This year? This year we're looking at the possibility of snow on the 24th with an overnight low of -1 and a high on Christmas Day of just 1C.
Either way there'll be no need for the snow shovel with rain returning on the 26th and continuing straight through to May.
