Anyone headed onto the Coquihalla Highway or Highway 3 should be careful today, because 20 to 30 centimetres of snow expected to fall.

The Pacific frontal system moving into southern B.C. today, Feb. 6, will bring significant amounts of snow to parts of the region, Environment Canada said in a snowfall warning.

Snowfall will vary on both the Coquihalla and Highway 3, from Hope to Princeton, via Allison Pass sections.

"The heavier snow is expected to ease late this evening," reads the warning.
