More snow and high winds expected in British Columbia: Environment Canada

Snow forecast to intensify on the Eagle Pass Trans-Canada Highway to Rogers Pass

Environment Canada is advising travelers to be prepared and drive safely as heavy snowfall is expected on highways in southern British Columbia.

The agency says snow is expected to intensify on the Eagle Pass Trans-Canada Highway to Rogers Pass, and is expected to continue through Monday evening.

The meteorological office says the interior of northern British Columbia can expect up to 8 inches of heavy snow over Teslin, Cassiar Mountains and Watson Lake, while the central and northern coasts can expect up to 50 cm of snow.

He said the snow will intensify tonight and continue through Sunday, with up to 50cm also expected on the Sea to Sky corridor.

Environment Canada says an approaching Pacific frontal system will create strong winds of up to 70 km / h for parts of eastern Vancouver Island and Metro Vancouver, but says these conditions should subside overnight.

He says weaker winds will also bring much warmer air to the area, with a risk of flurries that will turn to rain overnight.
