TERRACE and area residents woke up this morning to a mixture of rain and snow.

Snow, rain today in Terrace, B.C.

It's warmer today and caution is advised while on the roads

  • Dec. 19, 2016 4:00 p.m.

THE COLD temperatures of the past few weeks in Terrace and area moderated to warmer weather and a mixture of rain and snow over the weekend.

But freezing rain periods did play havoc as flights from Vancouver into the Northwest Regional Airport at Terrace were cancelled yesterday, resulting in altered travel plans for both those hoping to arrive and those hoping to leave.

Conditions are somewhat better this morning with Air Canada’s early morning flight leaving Terrace as scheduled.

But WestJet’s first planned arrival of the day from Vancouver is delayed.

Things were not that much better yesterday for those traveling on the ground with Via Rail canceling its service from Prince Rupert through Terrace to Prince George.

Via Rail said “mechanical issues” forced the cancellation.

Highways are open in the area but caution is advised because of the mixture of rain and snow falling on roads, particularly at higher elevations.

Environment Canada’s forecast for the coming week for Terrace and area calls for temperatures in the 3 degrees Celsius range with either snow and rain as the week progresses.

For Christmas Day, Dec. 25, the forecast is for snow with a temperature of minus 3 degrees Celsius.
