Environment Canada is warning drivers to take caution on the Coquihalla Highway this weekend as up to 25 cm of snow is expected.

A weather warning for the area was issued on Friday.

“An intense Pacific frontal system will approach the interior tonight. Light snow from the system will start early this evening and will become heavier overnight,” said Environment Canada.

“The snow is expected to continue through Saturday with total accumulations up to 25 cm expected by early evening. Meanwhile, strong southerly winds accompanying the system will give local blowing snow resulting in low visibilities.”

Between 15 to 25 cm of snow is predicted.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow,” warned the weather agency.
