Environment Canada is calling for 15 to 35 centimetres of snow to fall across B.C.’s central interior, beginning Wednesday evening.
The national forecaster said in a storm watch warning that a slow-moving frontal system will spread across the region into Thursday. The most snow will hit Thursday night into Friday afternoon.
By Saturday morning, an Arctic cold front will push towards B.C.’s south coast, bringing freezing conditions and a chance of snow to the Lower Mainland on Sunday.
A *Winter Storm Watch* has been issued for the Central Interior & the BC Peace Region for the potential of 15 to 30 cm of snow between Thursday & Saturday morning. Stay tuned to forecasts & alerts: https://t.co/lUYghHZ4j8 #BCstorm pic.twitter.com/nCxzYo4j4z
