Up to 10 centimetres of snow is expected Monday in the B.C. Peace, according to Environment Canada.
In a special weather statement issued on Sunday, the weather agency said a storm will move across the Peace and southern Fort Nelson region near Sikanni Chief on Monday. Snowfall accumulations between two to 10 cm are expected.
Snow will be accompanied by strong winds giving reduced visibility in blowing snow, and temperatures will rapidly drop through the day, Environment Canada said.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced, and travel may be difficult due to reduced visibility in some locations.
A snowfall warning is also in effect for Highway 97 through the Pine Pass, with a Pacific frontal system bringing snowfall accumulations near 15 cm today through Monday morning.
Light snow over Williston, McGregor, and the Pine Pass will become heavier Sunday afternoon, Environment Canada said. The snow will continue Sunday night with accumulations near 15 cm expected by Monday morning. As snow levels rise, snow may become mixed with rain overnight.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
