Winter storm warning in effect for:
- Sea to Sky - Squamish to Whistler
A stationary Pacific frontal system will continue to give freezing rain mixed with snow to the Sea to Sky Highway north of Squamish. The freezing rain should be confined to north of Brandywine by this afternoon and then just in Whistler by late afternoon.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and hazardous. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays.
Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
https://shiftintowinter.ca/ reminds drivers to know before you go. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.
