Travellers should be aware of the potential for snow on Southern BC Interor mountain passes this weekend.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement about the potential for up to 5 cm of snow on the Okanagan Connector, Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Kamloops and the Trans-Canada Highway from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass.

There is a cool air mass passing through the BC Interior which could result in mixed rain and snow causing dangerous driving conditions on mountain passes.

Environment Canada wants to remind people that weather can change rapidly in the mountains and be aware of changing road conditions while travelling.

Check for updates on road conditions.
