A weather statement for snow on Interior Highways this morning has ended.

"A vigorous cold front over southeastern B.C. will move out of the province this morning. Snow has already begun at Kootenay Pass and will begin at Rogers Pass early this morning," according to Environment Canada's special weather statement.

Rogers Pass on Highway 1 and from Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass on Highway 3 could see between five to 10 cm of snow. The snow is expected to ease mid-morning, according to Environment Canada.

"This afternoon, an unstable airmass will bring a chance of occasionally heavy flurries and a risk of thunderstorms. The flurries will be highly localized but could result in poor visibility and rapidly accumulating snow."

Road conditions are available on DriveBC's website.

To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
