A low pressure system will move across central BC Friday and Saturday. Snow is expected to begin Friday morning, and will intensify Friday night. Snow will ease on Saturday as the system moves into Alberta.
Through the Cariboo region, higher snowfall amounts are expected near the Cariboo Mountain with lower snowfall amounts near Williams Lake and Quesnel.
In addition to heavy snow, this system will also produce strong winds beginning Friday afternoon and continuing through Saturday. These winds combined with falling snow may locally reduce visibility further in blowing snow.
