Environment Canada has issued a storm warning for the Coquihalla Highway that will impact the area throughout Saturday.
Snow will develop over the highway passes beginning this morning, as a Pacific frontal system moves across southern BC today. Snow levels near 1000 metres this morning will rise to 1300 metres today.
Near the Coquihalla Summit and the Kootenay Pass, up to 10 cm of snow can be expected by this afternoon.
Looking ahead to this evening, an additional 5-10 cm of snow is possible for the Coquihalla Highway.
The weather agency also says that snowfall over other southern BC highway passes will be less intense and total amounts near 5 cm can be expected.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly and motorists are reminded to drive safely.
