Parts of B.C. are already seeing snow today

We knew the white stuff would eventually fall on B.C., but maybe not this soon.

On Sept. 11, the coldest spot in the province, according to Environment Canada is the Fort Nelson Airport, where temps today in the northeast corner of B.C. are in the 0 C to -1 C range, with light snow. Muncho Lake and Sikanni Chief also have light snow in Tuesday’s weather forecast.

​​​​​Our new sibling site, PrinceGeorgeMatters, notes Environment Canada has issued a snowfall advisory for the Pine Pass, warning driving conditions could deteriorate quickly today.


A cold front is expected to drop southward out of the Northwest Territories which will bring colder than seasonal temperatures to northeastern B.C.

Snowfall accumulations of approximately 10 centimetres are forecast across the B.C. South Peace and along Highway 97 between the Pine Pass and Chetwynd.

If your travels happen to take you up that way from the relatively balmy Kamloops in comparison, pack a parka and make sure those snow tires are in your car if you’re driving.
