Environment Canada Details…
25 to 35 cm of snowfall accumulation is expected over Pine Pass by early Saturday morning.
A deep low will track just south of Pine Pass today producing a favourable set-up for heavy snow over much of the B.C. central interior and especially Pine Pass. Heavy snow is already falling this morning. It will continue heavy at times today and this evening before easing overnight or early Saturday morning.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. ShiftIntoWinter.ca reminds drivers to know before you go. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.
