More snow is expected to fall on the Coquihalla today, prompting Environment Canada to reissue its snowfall warning.
"A southwest flow of moist and unstable air will continue to impact the Coquihalla Highway between Hope and Merritt today," the national weather agency reports.
"Periods of snow may be heavy at times resulting in accumulations of up to 10 centimetres today and again tonight. An approaching Pacific warm front Monday will give heavier snowfall beginning early Monday morning. Further accumulations will likely exceed 15 centimetres during the day."

Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
