Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Highway 97 from Clinton to 100 Mile House via Begbie Summit, as a result of a Pacific storm sweeping through B.C. later today and Tuesday. Heavy snow at times will begin late this afternoon over 100 Mile and the Chilcotin before ending overnight.

“Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow,” the alert states. “Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.”
