Snowfall warning issued for BC Interior highways

More stormy winter weather is expected to roll through the BC Interior on Friday and it’ll bring plenty of snowfall to a pair of main routes.

Environment Canada (EC) has issued a snowfall warning that includes Hwy 1 from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass and Hwy 3 from Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass.

The alert reads: “A Pacific frontal system will sweep over the BC Interior on Friday. Heavy snow from the system will start over (Hwy 1) in the morning and spread to (Hwy 3) in the afternoon. The snow will taper off to a few flurries early in the evening as the front moves southward away from the region.”

In total, around 15 centimetres of snow is expected for both routes.

Motorists are urged to adjust their driving with the changing road conditions.

EC notes that visibility could be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow and advises drivers to slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop if that is the case.

You can stay up to date on the latest highway conditions and closures through the DriveBC website.
