Special weather statement extended to Fort Nelson region

FORT NELSON, B.C. – A special weather statement issued by Environment Canada regarding possible snowfall this weekend has been extended to include the Fort Nelson Region.

Environment Canada says that there is potential for the first significant snowfall of the season to occur in the Peace Region, including the Pine Pass, and the southern Fort Nelson region, and adds that the statement may be upgraded to a snowfall warning later this morning.

An early season Arctic front will push down into northern BC today while a moist Pacific front streams up from southern B.C. Rain and cold north winds will develop across the Peace this morning and day time highs will struggle to reach the low single digits. As the southern moisture stream intensifies and the Arctic air becomes established, rain is expected to change to snow sometime this evening. 5 to 10 cm of snowfall is likely tonight with another 5 to 10 cm forecast Saturday. The highest amounts will occur over higher terrain.
