Sunday’s Forecast…

A long period of snowfall with total amounts of 20 to 30 cm continues.

Early-season heavy snow for part of the Alaska Highway.

The combination of an unseasonably cold arctic airmass and Pacific moisture associated with a low on the North Coast will result in continued heavy snow for higher elevations between Fort Nelson and Watson Lake.

The heavy snow is forecast to ease Monday morning.

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Heavy snowfall accumulation may cause tree branches to break.
