Special Weather Statement Ends for Williams Lake, Quesnel

Update 4:50 pm: A special weather statement due to the possibility of wet snow over higher terrain has ended.

Original story: A special weather statement calling for possible wet snow over higher terrain in Williams Lake and Quesnel continues.

Environment Canada issued the special weather statement Tuesday morning.

“If you’re heading up Highway 20 up to Heckman Pass looking at the webcam there this morning they’re seeing some wet snow accumulate,” says meteorologist Matt MacDonald.

“It’s really covering the whole Chilcotin through the Cariboo and up into Prince George.  A possibility of wet snow mainly this morning and as we get into the afternoon we see the temperature rise above zero which will probably change more to showers.”

Macdonald says this special weather statement will likely remain in effect until early this afternoon when temperatures begin to rise to 5 or 6 degrees making it harder to see any snowfall accumulation.

Looking at the long-range forecast Macdonald says a high-pressure system will make its way into the Cariboo tomorrow with temperatures getting back up to seasonal, 10 to 12 degrees and lots of sunshine.
