Get ready for some snow

Get out your snow shovels. Environment Canada is predicting snowfall of between 15 and 25 centimetres throughout the interior today.

A frontal system crossing the B.C. interior will continue to give snow to the region. Snowfall rates will increase this afternoon and heavy snow is expected through the night.

Ten to 15 centimetres of snow is forecast for many locations south of Prince George. For the area near Quesnel, communities closer to the Cariboo Mountains and along parts of the Yellowhead Highway, 15 to 25cm of snow is possible by Saturday morning.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.

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.
