FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Yellowhead Road and Bridge say the North Peace could see another 5 to 10 cm before the current storm moves out the area on Tuesday.

The forecast calls for 5 to 10 cm of snow in Fort St. John and Hudson’s Hope overnight Monday into Tuesday morning.  A snowfall warning remains in place for the South Peace.  That region could see anywhere from 15 to 25 cm of snow in the same time period.

YRB’s Greg McNeil says, “Side roads are of concern as the combination of snow and warmer air temperatures cause gravel roads to become soft. Crews have been attempting to restore drainage to aid the drying of roads by use of steaming culverts and cleaning out ditches.”
