Issued at 2019-11-11 12:13 UTC by Environment Canada:
Special weather statement issued for:
B.C. Peace River, B.C. (087300)

Current details:
Arctic air entrenched in the central interior combined with a Pacific warm front delivering warm moist air aloft will produce a wintry mix today and Tuesday.

Freezing rain or ice pellets will develop over the central interior this afternoon and spread south this evening to include the South Thompson region and southwest interior highways. Freezing rain and ice pellets are forecast to change to rain or showers Tuesday afternoon as the warm air reaches the surface and brings the temperature above zero.

Freezing rain may spread to the northeast including the B.C. Peace River, Pine pass and McGregor this evening and last through Tuesday morning.

Over the Bulkley Valley region including Smithers, snow or ice pellets will develop near noon. The potential for freezing rain will depend on the position of the warm front and the strength of the warm air aloft.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
