Keep your shovel, toque and gloves handy. 

The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for some frigid daily lows as well as another dumping of snow tonight. 

Environment Canada notes that the city will see a low of -5°C on Tuesday, however, the wind chill will make it feel closer to -14. And while the morning forecast calls for a 60 per cent chance of flurries, the evening is expected to see snowfall. Accumulations of five to 10 centimetres are expected by Wednesday morning, and a few additional centimetres are expected to fall during the day Wednesday. 

A third system, associated with a deep offshore low, is on the horizon for Wednesday night. A fair degree of uncertainty exists regarding its impact upon the south coast. The mainland coast may see some snowfall, however, Vancouver Island may see a considerable amount of snow as outflow winds increase with the passage of this system.

Snowfall is expected to continue until Friday, with the weekend forecast calling for a return to rain.
