UPDATE – Winter storm warning remains in place

UPDATE – The winter storm warning has ended for the B.C. Peace region.

There’s no indication yet of any road closures in the area, but the winter storm warning remains in place, and judging from parts of the city, there has been some heavy overnight drifting.

It can be somewhat deceiving, because wind direction was a key factor, and while some streets, sidewalks, and driveways have next to nothing to clear, others have one or two foot drifts.

Officially Environment Canada says we received only 2 centimeters of snow yesterday, but that total is based on a local airport reading at 11 o’clock last night.

So its difficult to say how close we actually came to the prediction for a total of 12 centimeters yesterday afternoon and overnight.

However, another 2 to 4 centimeters is forecast for today, with most of it likely this morning, and in addition, the strong Northwest wind is expected to be with us for at least another day, and so are the brutal wind chill temperatures.

Most of the roads in the Peace region are currently listed as having poor visibility and blowing snow. For more on roads in the region, click here.
