Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning Tuesday morning for the Coquihalla Highway, from Hope to Merritt.

Between 10 to 20 centimetres of snow is expected to fall on the highway in the next couple of days.

"A strong Pacific cold front will bring heavy snow to the route tonight," the March 3 Environment Canada alert reads.

"The snow will develop near the summit late this afternoon and then the snow level lowers to near 400 metres tonight as the front crosses the region. Total snowfall accumulations of up to 20 cm are expected by Wednesday morning."

Road conditions are available at www.drivebc.ca.
