Travellers eastbound face Winter Storm Warning through Saturday
If there is eastbound travel on the horizon for the next 72 hours you'll be heading into the heart of a Winter Storm Warning, with Environment Canada issuing the advisory in the early morning hours of today.
The storm the result of a slow moving frontal system is expected to bring up to 40 centimetres for the Buikley Valley region and points to the east starting today and carrying through until Saturday when conditions are expected to abate.
Closer to home the weather will be a mix in the Skeena Valley region with rain and snow expected with accumulations of 20 cm tonight and tomorrow for the Terrace/Kitimat region.
Prince Rupert is clear of the snow but will see rain for the next 48 hours with sun and colder temperatures ahead for weekend and keep an eye on the forecast the middle of next week when we could see periods of snow in the forecast.
For those travelling, the latest road conditions can be accessed through the Drive BC website with updates on the roads of the Northwest also available through their twitter feed.
You can also get a look ahead to what the latest conditions are from our archive of traffic cameras from around the Northwest.
