Greater Victoria schools are closed today as another round of snow is headed for the south coast.
SD61, SD62, and SD63 are closed today.
However, University of Victoria, Camosun College, and Royal Roads University campuses are open.
Environment Canada issued a new snowfall warning Monday just before 5 a.m. warning of more snow headed for Greater Victoria this afternoon.
A long period of snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres is expected.
A second low pressure centre in as many days will give more snow to the South Coast beginning this afternoon and continuing into Tuesday morning. It is expected to spread snow to virtually the entire South Coast with heaviest amounts falling tonight. Total snowfall amounts will vary across the region.
Friday saw the first significant snowfall and a late afternoon round closed highways and the airport Sunday.

Not sure if the City of Victoria and District of Saanich use different de-icing methods, or maybe it's because Saanich is much bigger? #yyjtraffic pic.twitter.com/SkyXKNR5Ya
