More snow for Coquihalla

For the second day in a row, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Coquihalla Highway between Hope and Merritt.

Travellers can expect slushy, snowy conditions on parts of the Coquihalla, including at the summit.

Environment Canada is calling for snowfall amounts up to 5 cm and strong southwesterly winds.

"A cool and unstable airmass will continue to bring snow to the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt this morning," states Environment Canada.

Up to 5 cm of snow is expected near the summit before the snow eases to light flurries later this afternoon.

Drivers are advised adjust to changing road conditions.

Strong winds could lead to localized blowing snow conditions with reduced visibility.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
