Weather woes continue for Northwest

A Pacific frontal system crossing into Northwestern British Columbia is wreaking a bit of havoc on the transportation plans of travellers in Northern BC.

Drive BC issued travel advisories for most of Highway 16 from Prince Rupert through to Prince George on Sunday as snow, freezing rain and an avalanche posed problems for those wishing to transit the Northwest corridor today.

Opinion 250 had details on the avalanche situation about 56 kilometres west of Terrace, which has reduced travel on Highway 16 to one lane.

The weather system extended into the Prince George region where that city battled heavy snow and poor travel conditions, with delays and cancellations noted at that city's airport, airline transportation in the Terrace are also has proved challenging this weekend as well.
