Other regions will receive snowfalls but total amounts are expected to remain below warning levels. The system will weaken and move southeastward later this morning leaving a few flurries or showers in its wake by early afternoon. Locally heavy snowfalls of 10 to 20 cm may develop over high mountain passes including the Coquihalla. Allison Pass and Rogers Pass later this afternoon as a westerly flow of unstable air flushes across the province behind the cold front.

Sure a good thing we don't need that truck!

The fun will start when the City realizes it will be warming up a few more degrees this afternoon or so and they will wait for the stuff to melt. Then we get hit with cold temps overnight until the end of the week when it is projected to stay above freezing at night.
That amount of snow did come and the main streets were plowed by the time I drove around late in the morning.
They do use a lot of salt there. With temperature about -6C those same streets were bare but wet.

Happy Farch, everyone.
for a good extension to their seasons. Any one heading into the backcountry today or the near future, don't take chances there is always a safe way in or out & nothing wrong with waiting for another time.
Sure does make the roads smoother.
I always knew the french couldn't drive.
Always something, isn't it...
