Snow is falling on the highways

More snow is set to fall across BC’s interior starting Friday.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning, predicting up to 15 centimeters of snow on the Trans-Canada Highway between Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass, and on Highway 3, between Paulson Summit and Kootenay Pass.

“A frontal system from the Pacific Ocean will sweep across the BC Interior on Friday,” says Environment Canada. “Heavy snow from the system will start over the Trans-Canada Highway – Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass in the morning and spread to Highway 3 – Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass in the afternoon.

“The snow will taper off to a few showers in the early evening as the front moves south away from the region.”

No warning has been issued for the Okanagan Connector or the Coquihalla Highway, but rain is expected on both local highways starting Friday.
