SIMILKAMEEN – Anyone planning to travel on Highway 3 from Hope to Princeton via Allison Pass should prepare for snowy conditions.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning at 8:45 a.m. today, Feb. 5, calling for 15 to 20 centimetres of snow. This warning comes after Allison Pass was blanketed in 26 cm of snow last night.

The expected snowfall is a result of an active weather system off the B.C. coast.
