A number of special weather statements have been issued around the province by Environment Canada that call for heavy snow on the mountain passes.
This is due to a frontal system tracking through the British Columbia Interior that will continue to bring heavy snow to the Coquihalla Highway and Rogers Pass today.
An additional 10-20 centimetres is expected to fall Thursday morning, before it tapers off this afternoon.
That snow is already affecting traffic on the Coquihalla, with compact snow and slippery sections. The Okanagan Connector is reporting similar conditions, with the addition of strong crosswinds from Aspen Grove to Pennask Summitt.
Motorists travelling on Highway 1 to Alberta will also find themselves in very wintery conditions. The highway will be closed 30 kilometres east of Revelstoke to 52 km east of the city for avalanche control between 9-11 a.m.
