HOWE SOUND (NEWS 1130) – If you’re driving the Sea to Sky tonight or tomorrow, be prepared for some wintry weather and potentially poor visibility on the roads.

Environment Canada is predicting 20 to 25 cm along the highway overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. A moisture-laden frontal wave is creating heavy snow at times, but there is some uncertainty about the temperature for Thursday, which will determine how much snow accumulates.

Highways, roads, walkways and parking lots can become slippery and difficult to get through as snow builds up.

It is warning that visibility could be reduced at times when snowfall is heavy, and asks the public to keep track of weather reports if they’re planning to use the road. Be sure to listen to NEWS 1130 for the latest road conditions.

Meanwhile, a rainfall warning is still in effect for other parts of the Lower Mainland. Howe Sound could see 70-90 millimeters of rain through Thursday night.
