Snowfall warnings for Pine Pass and Highway 16 east

If you’re heading out of town today, you best be heading south or west. If you’re headed north or west, you better make sure you have your snow tires on.

Environment Canada is calling for about 10 centimetres of snow in the Pine Pass and from Tete Jaune Cache to the Alberta border.
A Pacific low pressure system moving across the central interior will continue to give wet snow to the region this morning. Further accumulations of 5 cm can be expected mainly over higher elevations and near the Rockies. The snow will end later this morning as the low moves into Alberta.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

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.
