A weather alert has been issued for Highway 3, from Hope to Princeton via Allison Pass, as a northerly flow brings bands of moisture over the area with periods of snow expected on and off through today, Nov. 25, and tonight.

Local snowfall amounts will vary with the most snow expected on Allison Pass, where nine centimetres had already fallen by 8 a.m. today.

Total amounts are expected to range between 15 and 25 cm.
