For the second day in a row, some Vancouverites may have to navigate slippery roads during the morning commute. 

A fresh surge of moisture will interact with the cold air mass still in place across the South Coast.

Precipitation will likely start off as snow through the overnight hours, and by mid-morning there may be two to four centimetres on the ground.

Higher elevations, of course, have a better chance of seeing some accumulations.

The moisture is coming to Vancouver from the south, so it will be accompanied by warmer temperatures. The snow should change over to rain for Vancouver by Tuesday afternoon, with highs around 3 C.

Showers will continue through Wednesday morning with temperatures getting up to an almost balmy 6 C. 

A clearing trend is on tap for the rest of the week, with colder air looking to move back in for the weekend.
