“So the heavier amounts through the Pine Pass will be through the east towards Chetwynd, they have received up three centimetres this morning and for today, we might see ten more for the area,” says Jonathan Bau, Environment Canada Meteorologist.

The Bulkley Valley and Lakes District is just getting over a rough month of winter with over 53 centimetres falling in Smithers over the past 30 days.

“The lakes district is expected around 10 to 15 centimetres today and through those areas along Highway 16 out towards Smithers, Burns Lake and Fort St. James.”

Highway 27 between Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake is reporting less than ideal conditions.
