After a dump of snow on the Coquihalla Highway overnight, the heavy snowfall is expected to resume tonight.

Drivers heading to and from the Lower Mainland will get a break today, Jan. 20, with a few flurries expected, but another strong front will bring more heavy snow overnight and tomorrow.

Environment Canada has updated the snowfall warning for the Coquihalla Highway between Merritt and Hope as 20 to 30 centimetres of snow is expected by tomorrow evening.

Forecasters advise travellers to adjust their driving to changing road conditions, pointing out rapid snow accumulation will make driving difficult. As well, visibility can be suddenly reduced during heavy snow.

For the very latest on the snowfall warning go to the Environment Canada website here.

The latest road conditions can be found at the Drive B.C. website.
