Snow possible for Pine Pass and BC North…

Snow is not forecast for the Prince George region until later on this week but instead expect a lot of rain. You still have a few weeks before winter tires become mandatory on most BC highways but doing that now will save time in the long run.

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.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.

Road conditions are available at http://www.drivebc.ca.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
