FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Environment Canada has issued weather warnings for regions west of the Rocky Mountains in Northern B.C.

A snowfall warning has been issued for the Williston region, which includes Mackenzie and parts of Highway 97 south of the Pine Pass towards Prince George. Meteorologists say that a frontal system moving into the central interior today will bring snow to the area starting this afternoon before intensifying tonight. 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected before the snow eases Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, a Winter Storm warning has been issued for the McGregor and Prince George regions. Total snow amounts of 30 to 50 cm are forecast by Wednesday evening when the storm is forecast to gradually move southward through Wednesday night.

The Peace Region isn’t forecast to bear the full brunt of the storm, but communities including Fort St. John, Chetwynd, and Tumbler Ridge are still forecast to see periods of snow beginning tonight and throughout the day Wednesday. Temperatures in Fort St. John are forecast to hover between -23 and -18 for the next few days before things warm up to -1 on Saturday.
