  • Snowy Conditions Expected In Southern BC Mountain Passes: Environment Canada

VANCOUVER — Environment Canada is warning of potentially hazardous driving conditions in parts of B.C. as a spring snow falls over southern mountain passes.


The national weather forecaster issued a special weather statement as the spring snow continued into Sunday.


The flurries may result in five to 10 centimetres of snow over the Coquihalla Summit, Allison Pass, Paulson Summit and Kootenay Pass.


It says the weather in the mountains can change suddenly and create hazardous driving conditions.


DriveBC has been reminding drivers that winter tires or chains are required until April 30 on select highways, including mountain passes and rural routes in high snowfall areas.
