The first of a number of Pacific frontal systems has arrived on the North Coast and while the coastal region is dealing with wind and rain, for points inland on the North Coast the weather system is set to deliver 30 cm of snow tonight and tomorrow.
Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the inland areas for today and tomorrow, with Stewart to receive higher accumulations that some of the other communities of the region.
To this point, Highway 16 east of Prince Rupert has snow covered roads near Kasiks, though closer to Terrace the conditions have not brought much in the way of accumulations.
|Road conditions at Kasiks at 3 PM today|
For Prince Rupert, New Years Eve and Day will be a wet affair, with 45 mm of rain expected today with another 20 mm anticipated for New Years Day.
