Fresh snow overnight in the Cariboo Chilcotin means that many area roads and highways have compact snow and slippery conditions, and some areas with fog limiting visibility.
A crew from Canadian Mental Health Association Cariboo Chilcotin Branch’s supported opportunities program are out shovelling areas in downtown Williams Lake Thursday morning to clear sidewalks for pedestrians, while many business owners are doing the same.
Environment Canada’s forecast shows highs of-8C today for Williams Lake, with temperatures dropping to -12C with sunshine on Friday
Looking ahead, Environment Canada notes it will be colder on Christmas day with highs of -14C and lows of -22C in the forecast.
With those colder temperatures predicted, it’s a good reminder to keep an eye out on neighbours to make sure everyone is warm and safe.
