Late season snow over highway passes overnight through Friday morning.
A cold upper trough moving through British Columbia will give some late season flurries to the mountain passes and northern British Columbia overnight and Friday morning.
Flurries are expected above 1300-1500m elevation, however flurries could briefly descend lower during periods of intense flurry activity. Most southern highway passes are forecast to receive about 2 to 5 cm of wet snow overnight through Friday morning with a locally higher amount up to 10 cm possible over the Okanagan Connector.
Over northern BC, the Alaska Highway (Highway 97) from the Rocky Mountain foothills to the Liard River can also expect flurries overnight.
Precipitation will change back to rain on Friday as the airmass begins to warm.
Motorists and those venturing outdoors are encouraged to be prepared for winter-like conditions.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
