A special weather statement issued by Environment Canada on Monday persisted Tuesday, warning of unseasonably mild temperatures followed by a sudden drop Thursday evening.

The vigorous cold front will change rain to snow and freeze pooled water on sidewalks and roadways.

But that’s Thursday. Tuesday, the sun is out and it feels like April.

Expect a high of 12 C during the day, with UV index of 3, or moderate. At night, a low of 7 C and a chance of showers.

Meanwhile in B.C.

A special weather statement for a wintry mix of rain and snow has prompted an advisory for drivers in parts of British Columbia’s South Coast to prepare for poor road conditions.

A snowfall warning has also been issued for B.C.’s Northern Coast and Inland sections, with up to 25 centimetres coming for Stewart, while Kitimat and Terrace will see 15 to 20 centimetres of snow through to Wednesday morning.

B.C.’s Transportation Ministry issued the travel advisory, saying the mix of rain and snow could affect the Tuesday afternoon commute in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. It says drivers should ensure vehicles are properly equipped for the conditions, including having winter or snow-rated tires.

The Canadian Press contributed to this report.
