Snowfall warning in the forecast for inland areas as Easter Long Weekend set to begin

If your Easter travels will be taking you to inland areas of Northwestern British Columbia this weekend, the feeling won't be very spring like.

That as Environment Canada issues a Snowfall warning, which is now in effect for much of the Highway 16 corridor from east of Terrace through to Prince George.

A total of 15 centimetres of snow is expected to fall starting this evening and on into Friday morning, that as an upper warm front clashes with cooler air over the region.

Those travelling the regions highways over the weekend can get updates on Road Conditions through the Drive BC website and twitter feed.

You can also get a snapshot of road conditions through our archive of Highway camera locations around the Northwest available here.

For coastal areas of the North Coast today's forecast calls for rain, at times heavy, with a clearing trend on the way for Friday, with a chance of showers ahead for Easter egg hunters on Saturday and Sunday.

A look back at the past weather notes of the year so far can be found on our Weather archive page.
