Winter storm underway in Terrace

Environment Canada expects 20 to 30 centimetres of snow

Hazardous winter storm conditions including 20 to 30 centimetres of snow are expected in Terrace today, according to Environment Canada.

Snow was already falling at 8:30 a.m. More snow is expected throughout the day and into the late evening, driven by a deep low pressure system off of Vancouver Island moving north along the coast.

In addition to snow, winds of 50 to 70 kilometres per hour are expected. Blowing snow may limit visibility and Environment Canada reminds drivers to be prepared for “quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.”

The temperature is projected to remain steady around zero degrees Celsius during the day.
