Heavy snowfall expected Saturday

Break out the shovels. Environment Canada is forecasting 10 to 15 centimetres of snow in the Stuart-Nechako, Prince George, Cariboo and the Yellowhead regions Saturday.

A strong Pacific frontal system will be crossing the B.C. coast and moving into the B.C. Interior tonight. Light snow will begin overnight tonight and become heavy on Saturday. Total snowfall accumulations of 10 to 20 cm are expected. Areas closer to the Cariboo mountains such as Barkerville, Horsefly and Likely may receive total accumulations from 20 to 30 cm.

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