Lots of snow on the way for B.C. highways

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Coquihalla Highway and Highway 3.

This afternoon’s snowfall is about to get a whole lot heavier.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt and Highway 3 from Hope to Princeton.

An anticipated 30 centimetres of snow is expected for the Coquihalla Thursday night into Friday. While on the Allison Pass, 20 cm is expected.

A frontal system draped across the Southern Interior is responsible for the heavy snow in the region.

Snow levels will rise slightly on Friday bringing a mix of rain and snow to the highways.

Drivers traveling from Keremeos to Penticton on Highway 3A are reporting witnessing multiple accidents, including a rollover near Yellow Lake.

Motorists travelling along Highway97C can expect slippery sections from the junction with Highway 5A to Pennask Summit.
