Snow, heavy at times, is expected over the Pennask and Kootenay Pass summits today.
A frontal system will cross the province today. Snow levels have lowered to near 1,200 metres ahead of this system, and snow began overnight. The heavy snow is expected to continue through this morning with an additional 15 cm. Snow will taper off in the afternoon.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
