Watch out for snow on Coquihalla Highway, Okanagan Connector

We’re fast approaching June, so of course that means there are multiple snowfall warnings across BC Interior highways this morning.

The Coquihalla, Okanagan Connector, Allison Pass and Begbie Summit are all expected to see between two and five centimetres of the white stuff between today and Saturday morning.

DriveBC posted a short video this morning showing a very wintry scene along the Coquihalla, where snow is currently falling.

“An upper low will bring a cool air mass to higher elevations of the BC Interior today and into this long weekend,” according to a public notice from meteorologists at Environment Canada.

“Colder air along with precipitation means the mountain passes are seeing some snow now. The precipitation is going to change to rain during the day, and likely to return back to flurries tonight and into Saturday morning.

“Transportation routes may be impacted. Travellers should be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions.”
