Snow warning issued

If you haven't dusted off your shovels and winter boots, and kickstarted your snowblower from summer hibernation, now might be the time.

Environment Canada weather forecasters are predicting up to 40 centimetres of snow as a Pacific front moves in to Peace region early Friday morning.

That will clash with an Arctic front that will move in later in the afternoon, brining long periods of snow, at times mixed with rain, Environment Canada said. Between 20 to 40 cm of snow is expected to accumulate by Saturday afternoon, it said.

The snow will begin over the Williston region and Pine Pass Thursday, and then mixing with rain as the warm Pacific front arrives.

The North Peace region will likely stay north of the warm front and see the highest amount of snowfall, Environment Canada said.
