Earlier snowfall warnings have been expanded and now the forecast is for snow on mountain passes across the Southern Interior of B.C., according to Environment Canada.

"A series of fast-moving frontal systems will move through southern B.C. tonight and tomorrow night. These systems will usher in colder air which will cause snow levels to fall to near 1,300 metres overnight," Environment Canada said in a press release.

The Rogers Pass, from Revelstoke to Golden, expect five centimetres of snow tonight and Monday morning, according to weather reports. Possibly more than 10 cm will fall on Tuesday.

For Allison Pass, from Hope to Princeton, there will be up to five cm of wet snow possible tonight and an additional five to 10 cm will fall Monday night.

For the Coquihalla Summit, from Hope to Merritt, up to five cm of wet snow is possible overnight/early Monday morning. Another five to 10 zcm is possible Monday night.

For Surrey Summit, from Merritt to Kamloops, there was five cm of snowfall tonight and five cm again Monday night.
