Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning to those planning to travel on the Sea-to-Sky Highway between Squamish and Whistler on Thursday.

In a statement, the agency said that an approaching Pacific front will move inland and across southern BC on Thursday and Pacific moisture will combine with a “modified” Arctic air mass.

The end result of this will be snowfall that is forecast to begin overnight and continue into Thursday, with “amounts of 5 to 15 cm expected by Thursday night,” before the snow tapers off to flurries.

As always, Environment Canada is also reminding drivers that weather in the mountains can change “suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.”

Current and updated road conditions are available online at DriveBC.ca.
