Snowfall warning

Prepare for heavy snow on Thursday in the East Kootenay

Here we go again: brace yourself for snow on Thursday.

Environment Canada issued a warning early on Wednesday, November 6 that the East Kootenay will see another dump of snow starting Wednesday night.

“A low pressure system will develop Wednesday night and continue through Thursday. This system is expected to bring significant snowfall to the Columbia and Kootenay districts and to the Central Interior on Thursday.”

The Weather Office stopped short of saying how much snow we will receive, only indicating that it will depend on where the system passes over.

“Snowfall amounts over the regions mentioned above will vary depending on the actual track of the low pressure system,” reads the weather alert.

The snowstorm comes less than a week after the region saw its first snow fall of the season over the weekend, with accounts of 19 centimetres in Cranbrook and 28 centimetres in Kimberley.
