Winter is coming. Or in some cases, it has already arrived.

A blast of snow touched down in Northern BC on Tuesday morning.

An earlier weather statement hinting of some “early season snowfall” has been upgraded to a snowfall warning in Williston and the BC Peace River.

Drive BC and social media users have also begun to share photos of light flurries in the Fort Nelson area.

According to a statement issued by Environment Canada, 10 centimetres of snowfall is expected tonight across northern parts of the province.

The early and unexpected display of winter weather is due to a cold front that’s moving southbound out of the Northwest Territories and into northeastern BC.

Anyone travelling through the area is warned to give adequate travel time and prepare for “quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.”
