Heavy snowfall warnings are in effect for the Coquihalla Highway.
Snow on the Coquihalla will begin Tuesday evening as the snow level nears 900 metres, according to Environment Canada.
On Tuesday morning the snow level will approach the summit, which is set to receive 10 to 20 cm of heavy snow. The wet snow will change to rain Tuesday evening.
Meanwhile, the Okanagan and other parts of the Interior can expect the snow to keep coming towards the evening.
“We expect a total of 20 to 30 cm of snow between this evening and Tuesday evening across over North Okanagan, Shuswap and North Thompson,” said Environment Canada around 10:30 p.m. Monday night.
Environment Canada urges drivers to consider postponing non essential travel until conditions clear up, as the quickly accumulating snow will make highways, roads, walkways and parking lots difficult to navigate.
