“A Pacific frontal system will sweep over the B.C. Interior on Friday,” Environment Canada said in a press release.

“Heavy snow from the system will start over Trans-Canada Highway, Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass, in the morning and spread to Highway 3, Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass, in the afternoon. The snow will taper off to a few flurries early in the evening as the front moves southward away from the region.”

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
