According to Environment Canada, snow near Whistler will become heavy at times on Wednesday night before changing to rain on Thursday afternoon.

Snowfall in excess of 30 centimetres is possible in Whistler by Thursday afternoon.

Near Squamish, wet snow is expected to change to heavy rain overnight, with local snowfall accumulations of up to 15 cm.
