Heavy snow will develop over Southeast British Columbia tonight.
Heavy snow over Northeast British Columbia will ease before morning.
A trough of low pressure digging southward along the British Columbia coast will cross the Kootenay region of British Columbia overnight through early Monday morning. This system in combination with lowering freezing levels will bring locally heavy snowfall. Snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 cm are possible with locally higher amounts to 20 cm for the Elk Valley near Fernie. The snow will begin to taper off early Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile,the slow moving Arctic front continues to give locally heavy snow over the British Columbia Peace and to the McGregor region. In addition to the snow, gusty northerly winds will produce occasional reduced visibilities in blowing snow over exposed areas. The snow and blowing snow should ease before Monday morning as cold dry Arctic air settles over the region.
