Another snowfall warning issued, this time for the Trans-Canada Highway

Environment Canada has issued another snowfall warning for a mountain pass in the B.C. Interior.

This time, it’s the Trans-Canada Highway between Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass that’s expected to see around 20 centimetres of snow.

An intense frontal system moving over the province today is spreading snow over much of the B.C. Interior.

Snow will become heavy this afternoon, but is expected to taper off by early Wednesday morning.

Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow,” reads the warning from Environment Canada.

“Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.”

This is the third snowfall warning for a mountain pass in the B.C. Interior, as Environment Canada already issued them for the Coquihalla Highway and Hwy 3 earlier today.

You can find the most up to date driving conditions and webcam images of all B.C. highways on the DriveBC website.
