Weather Warnings issued for North Coast Inland for Sunday

UPDATE: 4:30 PM Drive BC issues a Do Not travel unless necessary advisory for Highway 16 for the Moricetown to Houston region.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Sunday, to accompany the Snowfall Warning issued last night for inland ares of the North Coast.

The Snowfall warning is calling for 20 to 20 cm of snow in inland areas through the day today, with the snow expected to changeover to rain in the Terrace-Kitimat region this afternoon.

However, with that changeover there is the risk of freezing rain later today and tonight, should that occur, Environment Canada reminds travellers of the region that travel could become treacherous during that changeover period.

You can review the full weather statement and alerts here.

Highway 16 was closed earlier today west of Fraser Lake around 7 AM owing to vehicle incident in the region..

The Highway was reopened to traffic at 10 AM

For updated Road Conditions consult with the Drive BC website or twitter feed for any changes to Northwest roads.
