Snow on the Malahat

UPDATE 12:03 p.m.

Poor weather is causing some headaches on Vancouver Island's only major highway, the Malahat has been backed up all morning.

Heavy snowfall tied up morning rush-hour traffic and crews were  
out plowing and sanding the route but Mainroad South Island Contracting asked drivers to slow down and use extra caution, while commercial drivers were asked to chain up.

Conditions appeared to have improved as of 10 a.m., but traffic at the Malahat Summit remained at a virtual standstill.


ORIGINAL 9:13 a.m.

While we are getting a break from the snow, parts of Vancouver Island are getting some of the white stuff.

The only highway connector up island, the Malahat has seen snow Friday morning.

Malahat fire and rescue are warning islanders to drive with caution.

Snow at this time of year is unusual on the island, like us they must be crossing their fingers and hoping for spring.
