Drivers are being warned about heavy snow on several B.C. highways Friday morning.
Environment and Climate Change Canada has posted a winter storm warning for the Coquihalla Highway and a snowfall warning for the Sea to Sky Highway.
Hazardous winter conditions are expected from Hope to Merritt as a Pacific storm moves across the B.C. Interior today, with up to 35 centimetres of snow expected in the region by Saturday morning.
The federal weather agency says the heaviest accumulation is expected this afternoon. Then, snow will taper off to flurries Friday evening.
Motorists are being asked to consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. The agency warns that driving in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
Meantime, up to 25 centimetres of snow is expected on the Sea to Sky Highway, as heavy snow has developed over Whistler and the highway north of Squamish overnight.
The agency says the snow is expected to continue Friday, but will begin to ease later in the morning.
Elsewhere in B.C., winter storm warnings are in effect for the Boundary, Elk Valley, Nicola, West Kootenay, and Kootenay Lake regions.
