Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring along the central coast.
Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for the region, saying northeasterly winds up to 90km/h are expected near mainland inlets by Tuesday morning.
An arctic ridge building over the BC Interior is to blame.
That arctic front building over the Interior is bringing snowfall warnings to Whistler and most of the southern Interior, including the Okanagan Valley and Shuswap.
Up to 20cm of snow is expected for those regions, and special weather statements have also been issued for the Sea-to-Sky highway, and mountain passes such as the Coquihalla Highway, Okanagan Connector and Kootenay Pass.
Environment Canada says as much as 20cm of snow is expected through tonight but the storm will continue eastward, dumping snow on Rogers and Kootenay passes tomorrow.
