More snow expected for BC highways

We haven't seen the last of the white stuff, as Environment Canada issues a special weather statement for several BC highways.

A cold upper low over Washington state will remain nearly stationary through Thursday.

Lowering freezing levels combined with moisture could mean 5 cm of snowfall along the Okanagan Connector and Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt by Thursday morning.

Snow has already fallen along Highway 3 at the Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass and 10 to 15 cm is expected by Thursday morning.

Highway 3 from Hope to Princeton via Allison Pass, also expected to see 5 to 15 cm of snowfall by Thursday.
