More snow is expected on higher level highways.  

About 10 to 20 centimetres of snow is expected on the Coquihalla Highway Sunday morning between Hope and Merritt.

A trough of low pressure traversing the B.C. Interior is resulting in heavy snowfall on the Coquihalla Summit and Allison Pass early this morning, according to Environment Canada.

"Coquihalla coming out of Hope, no lanes plowed, minimal sanding, blowing snow, chain up is in effect for trucks," said a person on a road conditions Facebook page. "I drive this road a lot and this is the worst I've seen it, personally, this winter."

The snow is expected to ease throughout the morning but further accumulations up to 10 centimetres are possible.

Be prepared to adjust your driving to changing road conditions.

ShiftIntoWinter reminds drivers to know before you go. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.

Road conditions are available at DriveBC.
