It could be a snowy drive for those heading up and down the Sea-to-Sky highway today and tomorrow.
On Thursday morning, Environment Canada issued a weather alert for the region, warning that between 15 and 20 cm of snow is expected, beginning in the afternoon and continuing until Friday morning.
The forecasted snow is the result of a low pressure system that “will approach the South Coast later today and spread snow to Whistler and Sea to Sky Highway north of Squamish,” the alert reads. “Snow will become heavy at times tonight and total amounts of 15 to 20 cm are expected by Friday morning.”
In addition, “rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult [and] visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.”
Drivers are reminded to always adjust their driving to the road conditions as weather in the mountains can change suddenly.
