Snowfall warning issued for Pine Pass



If you’re heading north this morning, you might want to rethink those plans.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Pine Pass with 10 to 15 centimetres of snow expected today.

A Pacific front will sweep down through the Interior today. It will combine with a frigid arctic air mass already in place to produce snow.

The snow will start early this morning, with total accumulations of 10 to 15 cm expected by the time the snow ends this evening.

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.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.

ShiftIntoWinter.ca reminds drivers to know before you go. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.
