Environment Canada Details below…
A cold front is forecast to drop southward out of the Northwest Territories on Tuesday bringing unseasonably cold temperatures to northeastern BC. Rain will quickly change over to snow as the front passes.
Snowfall accumulations will vary widely due to melting upon contact with the ground. Current indications are suggesting that anywhere from 2 to 10 centimetres of heavy, wet snow will fall with greater accumulations likely over the higher terrain to the west.
Those travelling through the area including Pine Pass and Highway 97 are advised to prepare for rapidly changing weather and road conditions.
As the event draws nearer, forecasts will be refined and, if necessary, snowfall warnings will be issued.
Road conditions are available at http://www.drivebc.ca.
