Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

Heavy snow changing to rain tonight.

Snowfall accumulation: 25 cm.

Timespan: This morning to near midnight.

Other hazards: 20 to 30 mm of rain.

Remarks: A strong front will bring heavy snow to Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass, beginning this morning. 25 cm of snow is expected near the pass before changing to rain after midnight as freezing levels rise.

After the snow changes to rain, an additional 20 to 30 mm is expected overnight through Sunday.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

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

The site https://shiftintowinter.ca/ reminds drivers to know before you go. Adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.
