Environment Canada issued a Snow Squall warning for the B.C. Peace Friday. The warning says the region will experience strong winds and blowing snow. The snow and wind has caused whiteout conditions on area roads and made even roads in Fort St. John extremely slippery.

If you don’t need to travel, it’s best to stay at home.
