Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Highway 3 - Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass

Snow expected on highway passes...

A cold airmass associated with an upper low has caused freezing levels to plummet this week. Light snow has been observed on the Okanagan Connector, Rogers Pass and Kootenay Pass on previous mornings.

With the cold air mass remaining in place, the threat of snow will continue today and tonight. The unstable nature of the airmass makes the timing and location of snowfall uncertain however significant accumulations are most likely over Kootenay Pass.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
