Winter Storm Warning issued for Terrace, Kitimat, Stewart areas

A view of Highway 16 at Kwinitsa taken from 10:45 this morning, things
could change significantly as the day moves forward with a Winter Storm
Warning now in effect for the North Coast Inland areas.

While the North Coast coastal areas will be facing some strong winds and heavy rain today and tonight, further inland the forecast is for snow and  fairly large amount of it, which could make for some travel challenges for those heading inland over the next twenty four hours or so.

The advisory issued earlier this morning notes of snow and freezing rain, with Stewart to receive the largest amount of snow at 25 centimetres

The forecast for the Terrace notes that the snow will be heavy at times this afternoon with a total accumulation of near 20 cm by Tuesday morning. Lesser amounts of snow are anticipated for the Kitimat area.

You can access updated weather information from the Environment Canada website.

As the storm arrives the road conditions across the Northwest can be reviewed from the Drive BC website and twitter feed.

You can also access our range of Video Camera listings for along the Highway 16 corridor and its feeder routes here. Though it should be noted, that at this time a number of those camera locations are not in service due to technical issues.
