Environment Canada has issued a Freezing Rain Warning for much of Central BC, Cariboo, McGregor, and possibly the BC Peace, including the Pine Pass. A frontal system is moving slowly and will be in the PG region later this afternoon.
Freezing rain or ice pellets will develop over the Central Interior this afternoon and spread south this evening to include the South Thompson region and southwest interior highways. Freezing rain and ice pellets are forecast to change to rain or showers Tuesday afternoon as the warm air reaches the surface and brings the temperature above zero.
Freezing rain may spread to the northeast including the B.C. Peace River, Pine Pass and McGregor this evening and last through Tuesday morning.
Over the Bulkley Valley region including Smithers, snow or ice pellets will develop near noon. The potential for freezing rain will depend on the position of the warm front and the strength of the warm air aloft.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
Please drive carefully and listen for updated road conditions if you plan to travel Monday and Tuesday. Typically with freezing rain, travel advisories can be issued.
