Warnings

3:43 PM PST Friday 19 January 2018
Snowfall warning in effect for:

  • Coquihalla Highway - Hope to Merritt

Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected.

A Pacific front moving across the Interior tonight will give snow to the Coquihalla Summit. Light snow late this afternoon will become heavier this evening and persist through tonight. Total snow accumulations of 10 to 20 cm can be expected before the snow tapers off to a few flurries Saturday morning.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. 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.

Road conditions are available at www.drivebc.ca.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.tempetepacifique-pacificstorm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
