“Snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres can be expected by this afternoon,” Environment Canada’s warning states. “Snow is expected to taper to flurries this evening.”

Heading into the weekend highs of 0C Saturday and Sunday with lows of -6C overnight are forecast alongside mainly sunny skies, with chances of flurries both days.

DriveBC, meanwhile, is reporting no major incidents throughout the Cariboo region as of around 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, however, drivers are advised to be cautious due to slushy sections, limited visibility and compact snow along major routes including Highway 97 and Highway 20.
