Snowfall Warning issued for North Coast Inland Sections

Update: 4:30 PM Snowfall Warning has ended for the North Coast Inland areas

The mixture of cold air and an approaching Pacific Front is combining for what might be a fairly impressive dump of snow over the next little while.

At 11 AM Environment Canada issued a Snowfall warning for Coastal Sections of the North Coast, with total amounts of up to 10 cm expected before the system moves further inland overnight.

The snow event should be a short lived thing beyond Monday, as temperatures are expected to climb through the week reaching a high of 7 above by next Saturday.

The full forecast can be found here.

With that snow, attention on the roads, particularly for those travelling inland will be required.

Some stretches of Highway 16 from Prince Rupert to points east are already listed as having slippery sections, with conditions expected to worsen as the snow arrives.

You can learn the latest conditions from the Drive BC website and twitter feed.
