PENTICTON - Travellers using the Trans Canada Highway from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass should prepare for winter driving conditions this weekend as a low pressure system is expected to dump five to 10 cm of snow tonight and tomorrow.

A special weather statement continued by Environment Canada this morning, April 26, says to expect freezing levels to drop as a low pressure trough crosses the province, causing rain showers to switch to snow over the mountain passes.

The Yoho Park - Kootenay Park region and higher elevations of the Trans-Canada Highway, including Rogers Pass, could see five to 10 cm of snow through tonight and Saturday, with Kootenay Pass and Elk Valley expected to receive five cm of snow later Saturday.

Motorists should be prepared for winter driving conditions.
