Special Weather Statement issued for Trans-Canada Highway Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass

A special weather statement has been issued for highway passes around Revelstoke to see snow tonight and Tuesday.

Periods of snow will develop over many high elevation highway passes starting this evening as a cold front sweeps down from the north. Snow flurries will continue through Tuesday afternoon.

The passes that will be affected by measurable accumulations are Rogers Pass, the Coquihalla, Okanagan Connector and Allison Pass.

Snowfall accumulations at this time are forecast to be from 5 to 10 cm through Tuesday. However, local accumulations greater than 10 cm are possible. Uncertainty remains about how much moisture will be available once road surfaces get sufficiently cold to allow snow to accumulate.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.

Winter tires are required as of October 1st for highway driving in BC.

Road conditions are available at www.drivebc.ca.
