Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for the Coquihalla Highway, from Hope to Merritt, saying up to 25 centimetres of snow will fall.

"A frontal system will cross the B.C. interior on Sunday, spreading heavy snow to parts of the southern highway passes," the national weather agency said in the statement.
"Heavy flurries will continue Sunday night as an unstable airmass will set up over the province in the wake of the front."
Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 cm are expected by Monday morning.
"Snow will ease on Monday as the system weakens," reads the alert.
"Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow."
