Warning issued as 25 cm of snow forecast for B.C.’s Interior highways
Heavy snowfall and icy road conditions are expected the make the drive through B.C.’s Interior mountain pass a lot trickier on Tuesday, says Environment Canada.
An unstable air mass moving across the Interior is expected to deliver up to 25 cm of snow to the Coquihalla, Crowsnest and Okanagan Connector highways, according to meteorologist Doug Lundquist.
The cold weather is part of a storm crossing the southern part of the province this week, one that will reach its peak Tuesday night with 15 cm of snow forecast.
“People who decide to drive from the coast to the Interior or Alberta are at serious risk,” Lundquist said.
