Around 10-12 am Wednesday (January 18) will bring heavy snow to areas like Victoria, Vancouver, Bellingham, and Abbotsford. Strong winds will accompany the system, with gusts up to 80 km/h in Vancouver, Nanaimo, Bellingham, and Abbotsford.

Heavy snow and strong winds may create whiteout conditions. Cold temperatures and strong winds will create wind chill near the minus teens.

Snowfall amounts:

Southern areas of Vancouver: nearly 20 cm
Abbotsford: 25-30 cm
Victoria: up to 30 cm or more
Bellingham: up to 30 cm or more

The Rockies will receive significant snowfall, possibly nearing 40-50 cm in certain places.

Seattle will likely see a messy mix. Freezing rain may also occur.
