Travellers making plans for an eastbound journey from Prince Rupert over the next twenty four hours will want to keep an eye on the Environment Canada website and the latest updates from Drive BC.
Environment Canada issued a Storm Warning for the North Coast Inland areas just before 4 PM today, with precipitation to start as snow, mixed with freezing rain at times as the storm system comes into the Northwest.
The snow and freezing rain will give way to rain as warmer air begins to push the colder air from the North further inland. Strong winds will also arrive as the pacific front moves onshore and travels east.
The Storm Warning has also been issued for areas of the Central Coast.
