Coquihalla – A moist Pacific frontal system moved inland early Tuesday morning. In its wake, a strong southwest flow will send waves of moisture across the Coast Mountains over the next 36 hours.
Approximately 17 cm of snow fell near the Coquihalla summit Monday night. The snow eased Tuesday morning but will re-intensify as the next wave approaches. Additional snowfall amounts of 15-20 cm are forecast by late Tuesday afternoon.
Periods of heavy will continue Tuesday night and further amounts are likely to exceed 15 cm bringing total storm accumulations into the 40 to 50 cm range before snow eases off on Wednesday.
Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.
