Prepare for weekend snowfall

Environment Canada issues weather warning for East Kootenay region.

  • Jan. 2, 2015 2:00 p.m.

A moisture-laden system moving in from the Pacific Ocean will bring a wintry mix to the western interior beginning Sunday morning. These weather conditions will spread across the rest of the central and southern interior throughout the day.

The clash of this warm and moist system with the entrenched Arctic air will lead to significant snowfall in many areas. As the system progress, the snow may transition to freezing rain in southern regions.

Forecasts will be updated and any potential warnings will be issued as the exact location and snowfall amounts are determined.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
