PRINCE GEORGE, BC: A third storm system is making its way to the Prince George and Quesnel regions and it is bringing a lot of snow over a two day period for both communities…
After 20 plus centimeters fell Friday and Sunday combined, another 45 cm could fall by the time Thursday overnight arrives. This time however could be different as the temperatures warm up from the current deep freeze we got going on. Snow on Wednesday could be heavy, wet snow as the temperature rises to minus 5.
Snow is expected to begin Tuesday afternoon with total accumulations between 15 to 20 cm with a temperature sitting around minus 13. On Wednesday, an additional 20 to 25 cm is expected. Wednesday could change as it is too early to finalize the accumulation details.
For Quesnel, heavy snow is in the forecast for Tuesday and a mix of wet snow and rain is forecast for Wednesday. Temperatures will be warmer in the Cariboo region compared to Prince George. The same accumulations are forecast for Quesnel.
Travel is already dicey in both regions and another 40 cm of snow for local highways could bring some travel warnings like we saw on Sunday.
This post will be updated as we progress into Wednesday. Drive carefully!! Check DriveBC.ca before leaving.
