First significant snow of the season begins to accumulate along Highway 16 corridor

What is shaping up to be the first significant snowfall of the season is currently underway east of Prince Rupert, with a Winter Storm Warning in effect for many communities along the Highway 16 corridor.

The Port Edward Turnoff, makes for the last of the clear pavement for those travelling today, with snow accumulations beginning to arrive in Terrace, Kitimat and Smithers

The further into the Bulkley Valley one travels the more challenging the conditions with snow, blowing snow and limited visibility the key concerns for those on the roads this afternoon.

An update from Bulkley Lakes-Stikine District was recommending a delay for any travel plans as the storm continued to build through that region of the Northwest.
