Environment Canada issues snowfall warning for parts of the Cariboo

A snowfall warning is in affect for parts of the Cariboo, along with some stronger winds.

Environment Canada is expecting Quesnel and Williams Lake to remain under the warning throughout the day, however 100 Mile House will be unaffected by it.

Senior Meteorologist Jonathan Bau says the snow amounts will differ depending on the area.

“We do have a frontal system that’s looking to move through the BC Interior for today, and it will spread snow to the area.” says Bau.

“However, at this time we’re looking at the heaviest snowfall amount will actually be to the east, through the Cariboo Mountains.”

Bau adds that while communities will see a lesser amount of snow, there will be stronger winds, with the Cariboo Mountains seeing the opposite.

He says that 100 Mile House could see 2-4 centimetres of snow, with 5 for Quesnel and Williams Lake.

As to if the snow will carry over into tomorrow, Bau says it’ll mostly be for today, but will carry through tonight, and maybe scattered flurries for the mountains.
