Snowfall warnings on passes

Multiple snowfall warnings are currently in effect for mountain passes in B.C.

Snowfall between 15 to 20 centimetres is expected on Highway 3 between Hope and Princeton, and on the Coquihalla Highway between Hope and Merritt.

A snowfall warning is also in place for Highway 3 in the Boundary region from the Paulson Summit to the Kootenay Pass, with 15 to 20 cm of snow projected to fall there.

There are unconfirmed reports of three separate single-vehicle incidents near the Paulson Summit on Highway 3, with one potentially involving a semi-truck.

Environment Canada issued all of those warnings at 7:00 p.m.

The snow will turn to rain in all of those areas during overnight hours, but at least 15 cm are expected before that happens, according to Environment Canada. 

Motorists are advised to adjust their driving to the conditions, and to be aware of the difficulty in travelling through areas where snow is heavily falling.
