A mix of sun and clouds will greet Williams Lake Sunday morning with an average temperature of -21C that will feel like -29C with the windchill. No snow is forecasted at all this weekend.

Approaching Bella Coola on Highway 20, compact snow is still something to watch out for between Olsen Dr and Rainbow Range Trailhead with sporadic muddy sections. Packed snow on Highway 20 is also prevalent closer to Williams Lake from Stack Highway Road to Highway 97 with an advisory out on slippery sections.

The travel advisory issued for Highway 97 Friday evening is still in effect between Mountain House Road and Stoner Pit Road due to slippery conditions and low visibility.

The weather is expected to warm up throughout the week, though snow is predicted come Thursday and Friday.
