      It's been a mostly snow-free December so far on Canada's Wet Coast. No, that isn't a typo.

      That's because dating back to November 1, there's been more than 300 milimetres of rain in Vancouver.

      But according to Environment Canada, we could start seeing some of the white stuff on Monday (December 21). Naturally, it's being described as "wet snow".

      "A low pressure system crossing Washington state Monday will bring abundant moisture to southern sections of the south coast," the national weather forecaster stated in a statement this morning. "Areas with the heaviest precipitation will see the heavy rain switch over to heavy wet snow above about 150 metres during the day. Mixed rain and snow is even possible at sea level.

      "Precipitation should not be as heavy for northern sections of Vancouver so the snow level will likely be above 200 metres. Snowfall accumulations are uncertain at this time."

      Be careful on the roads, whether you're cycling or driving.
