Environment Canada has issued snowfall warnings for the Coquihalla Highway between Hope and Merritt and Allison Pass between Hope and Princeton along Highway 3.
The weather authority anticipates snowfall amounts of 10 to 15 centimetres on Sunday (Feb. 7) before the snow tapers off to a few flurries Monday morning.
Visibility may be suddenly reduced by heavy snow, rapid accumulation will make travel difficult and poor conditions may cause delays, Environment Canada stated.
The same weather disturbance responsible for snowy highways is also expected to make temperatures drastically drop over the next few days.
Interior regions will be 10 to 20 degrees below the seasonal average while coastal areas will be 5 to 10 degrees below seasonal.
