Snow to fall on highways

More snow is set to fall over B.C.'s Interior beginning Friday.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning, forecasting up to 15 centimetres of snow on the Trans-Canada Highway between Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass, and on Highway 3, between Paulson Summit and Kootenay Pass.

“A Pacific frontal system will sweep over B.C. Interior on Friday,” Environment Canada says. “Heavy snow from the system will start over Trans-Canada Highway - Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass in the morning and spread to Highway 3 - Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass in the afternoon.

"The snow will taper off to a few flurries early in the evening as the front moves southward away from the region.”

No warning has been issued for the Okanagan Connector or the Coquihalla Highway, but flurries are expected on both local highways beginning Friday.
