Heavy Snowfall in Smithers-Terrace Area

Sunday, March 12, 2017 @ 3:00 PM

Prince George, B.C. – Motorists heading to the Bulkley Valley and further west are advised that heavy snowfall is occurring, with 20 to 25 cm expected.

Environment Canada indicates that snow will continue today as a frontal system pushes onto the North Coast. Total snowfall amounts near 25 cm can be expected today and tonight between Terrace and Smithers.
Warm air begins to creep inland this evening and a risk of freezing rain will persist tonight into early Monday morning. 
Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.

Road conditions are available at www.drivebc.ca.


Hate to tell these idiots, but we are getting a continued snowfall ourselves. Probably a report from BCTV, as they serve only the south anyways and have no idea that we exist past Hope!

    Sent an e-mail a while ago to CBC kindly letting them know we are the Central Interior of the province. They sent back that we are northern BC to them. Like you say, anything past Hope……..

      Yea, figures! On a different note I sent an email to Shirley Bond about getting rid of the time change, curious if I get an answer!

OK you two geniuses, why does Prince George call itself BC’s Northern Capital? By your nit-picking geographic standards it should be called BC’s 54th Parallel Capital.

    PG can call itself whatever it wants, does not change the fact it is in the middle of the Province.
