winter storm watch
Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the entire Peace and Northern Rockies region.

​Environment Canada has issued a winter storm watch ahead of a forecast that's calling for the potential of up to 25 cm of snow by Friday night.

The watch covers the entire northeast corner of B.C. extending from Prince George through to the Fort Nelson region and into the Yukon.

In a statement, it says heavier snow will make its way into the Peace Region sometime Thursday night before tapering off on Friday.

The forecast is for anywhere between 15 and 25 cm to fall before the weather system leaves the area.

"Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations and visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow," warns the statement.
