Between 15 and 25 centimetres of snow will fall on mountain passes in the Southern Interior in the next couple of days, prompting a snow warning from Environment Canada.

The national weather agency issued the warning for the Trans-Canada Highway, from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass, and the Coquihalla, from Hope to Merritt.

A warm front will bring heavy snow to both areas, starting Tuesday and continuing through Wednesday.
