Snow begins to stick along Northwest Highways east of Terrace; driving conditions may be challenging for travellers

Snow is making for challenging driving in areas from Terrace 
east to Burns Lake, North to the Nass and South to Kitimat

With a Pacific front set to make for a wet introduction tonight and through the weekend, the cooler temperatures inland are making for slick and snow covered roads from Terrace east south and north.

Environment Canada is calling for up to 20 cm of snow tonight in the Terrace/Kitimat area, as well as in the Nass Valley, Bulkley Valley and Lakes District to the east

Drive BC cameras show the current status of the snow falling on area highways.

To the North, snow is falling in the Nass Valley as well.

Drive BC also reports that Highway 16 is currently closed near Telkwa following a vehicle incident. 

So far, there does not appear to be any snow accumulation between Prince Rupert and Terrace, though as the temperatures drop, the road conditions will become slicker as well.

You can keep up with any updates to Road Conditions across the Northwest from the Drive BC website and twitter feed.
