Winter storm watch for Prince George

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm watch for Prince George.

Widespread snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are possible from late Sunday through Monday morning.

A frontal system, moving across the northern Gulf of Alaska is expected to spread significant snowfall amounts over northern BC and Yukon. For most areas, snow will begin on Sunday afternoon or evening and become heavy Sunday night. Snow will ease Monday morning. There is a risk of freezing rain in Prince George, Stuart, Bulkley Valley and the Lakes areas Sunday night and Monday morning.

Over the Chilcotin and northern Cariboo regions, lesser snowfall amounts are expected but a changeover to freezing rain is possible.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.

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.
