Freezing rain a possibility in the Kitimat area

A period of prolonged snowfall continues in the Terrace and Kitimat area as series of storms moves onto the north coast of British Columbia. Environment Canada expects the snow to continue in the area well into the night, with total snowfall accumulations of 40 to 50 cm by Thursday morning before the snow tapers off to a few flurries.

A risk of freezing rain will continue today near Kitimat as well.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.
