Fall is in the air in the Cariboo, snow on the way for the Chilcotin

Five to 10 cm of snow by Saturday morning, according to Environment Canada

A special weather statement is in effect for the Chilcotin Friday, Sept. 27.

Snow is possible for the eastern slopes of the Coast mountains during the day and night, today and tonight, with five to 10 cm of snow by Saturday morning, according to Environment Canada.

“As a cold airmass settles in over the B.C. Interior, an upper level disturbance will approach from the north, stalling over southern B.C. through the weekend,” states Environment Canada.

“As freezing levels drop, rain showers mixed at times with wet flurries are forecast. A persistent northeasterly flow will set-up later today and areas over the western and southern Chilcotin could potentially see snowfall accumulations beginning (Friday) afternoon.”
