Snowfall warning issued for BC South Peace region

The snow is expected to in continue through Friday evening, resulting in total snowfall accumulations in the 15 to 25 centimetre range.


Officials say that visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
