Fraser Valley/Fraser Canyon/Coquihalla – June Snow on the higher terrain. A Special weather statement in effect Thursday night and into Friday for:

  • Coquihalla Highway – Hope to Merritt
  • Highway 3 – Hope to Princeton via Allison Pass

Late season snow over highway passes overnight through Friday morning

A cold upper trough moving through British Columbia will give some late season flurries to the mountain passes and northern British Columbia overnight and Friday morning.

Flurries are expected above 1300-1500m elevation, however flurries could briefly descend lower during periods of intense flurry activity. Most southern highway passes are forecast to receive about 2 to 5 cm of wet snow overnight through Friday morning with a locally higher amount up to 10 cm possible over the Okanagan Connector.

Precipitation will change back to rain on Friday as the airmass begins to warm.
