Freezing rain may greet motorists travelling along the Coquihalla Highway on Monday night.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement., noting Arctic air entrenched in the province’s Central Interior, combined with a Pacific warm front delivering warm moist air, will produce a wintry mix on Monday and Tuesday.
Freezing rain or ice pellets will develop over the Central Interior on Monday afternoon and spread south Monday evening to include the South Thompson region and southwest Interior highways. Freezing rain and ice pellets are forecast to change to rain or showers by Tuesday afternoon as the warm air reaches the surface and brings the temperature above zero degrees Celsius.
Drivers are urged to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
