Here we go again. After a weekend that felt like spring, winter is back in the Sea to Sky.

An Environment Canada snowfall warning is in effect for Squamish to Whistler.

Snow in the Sea to Sky region (Squamish Chief)

Total amounts of 10 to 20 cm of the white stuff is expected on Tuesday.

A Pacific low-pressure system will cross the south coast Tuesday night. The light snow the area will receive during the day will become heavy at times Tuesday evening as the low approaches. Snowfall amounts of up to 20 cm are forecast tonight. The snow will end early Wednesday morning as the low moves out of the area, according to Environment Canada.

Be extra vigilant on the highway.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow, creating hazardous driving conditions.
