"Rain will quickly change over to snow as the front passes."

Between two to 10 centimetres of heavy, wet snow is predicted to fall, though accumulations will vary. The forecast will be updated and snowfall warnings issued if necessary.

Motorists travelling through the Pine Pass and along Highway 97 are advised to prepare for rapidly changing weather and road conditions, and to drive accordingly.

The City of Fort St. John says snow plows and sand trucks are on standby.

In Prince George, Wednesday's high is expected to be just 7 C, with an overnight low of -3 and a 40 per cent chance of precipitation.
