Snowfall warning continues in B.C. Peace; storm moving into Alberta


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – If we didn’t already get enough snow on Thursday, Environment Canada says more is still possible.

Over 20 cm fell in the North Peace on Thursday and another 10 cm are still possible before the spring storm is over.  Environment Canada says light snow will continue until Saturday morning.

The heavy snow has caused slippery sections on all the local roads and highways.  For more information about highways in B.C., visit www.drivebc.ca.
