Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for the Pine Pass region as snow is in the forecast for today and into Thursday.
Up to 15 cm of snow is expected from the slow moving system coming in from Alberta Wednesday morning.
A slow – moving low pressure system will develop in Alberta early this morning. A mix of rain and snow from the system will spread to Highway 97 – Pine Pass this afternoon. As the temperature dips below freezing, the precipitation will completely transform to snow on Wednesday night and will persist into Thursday morning.
The snow is expected to taper off to a few flurries or rain showers later Thursday as the low weakens.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance.
