Environment Canada issues snowfall warning for Revelstoke area

Environment Canada has issued a Trans-Canada Highway snowfall warning for Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass.

A long period of snowfall with total amounts of 20-30 cm is possible through till Tuesday night, the warning says.

“Persons in or near this area should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions,” the warning says.

Snowfall is expected to ease by Wednesday morning.

This warning comes on the heals of snowfall warnings in the Okanagan.
