Environment Canada has issued a Snowfall Warning for the Pine Pass region. Up to 20 cm of snow is expected.
Snowfall with total amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected.
A Pacific frontal system will approach the northern BC interior late today spreading snow to Highway 97 – Pine Pass. 10 to 20 cm of snow can be expected from late this afternoon to Thursday morning with this system. Snow will taper off Thursday morning as the system moves to the east.
Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. https://shiftintowinter.ca/ reminds drivers to know before you go. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.
Road conditions are available at http://www.drivebc.ca.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
