Winter storm watch in effect for Pine Pass

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm watch for the Pine Pass.

"Five to 10 centimetres of snow is forecast tonight," the agency said in a bulletin issued shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday. "However, more significant snowfall is expected on Friday night and Saturday with another 20 to 30 centimetres possible. The snow will taper to flurries on Saturday evening."

It said a Pacific frontal system will move into northern B.C. interior Friday morning and be followed by an Arctic front pushing through the region on Friday afternoon and then stalling over the region on Saturday.

"Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow," Environment Canada advised. "Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight."

The watch is also in place for the Williston region.

Meanwhile, a freezing rain rain warning previously issued for the Prince George, Stuart-Nechako and Bulkley Valley-Stikine regions has been called off but remained in place for the North Coast inland as of late-afternoon Thursday.
