Road and weather report: All buses running in School District 27 Monday morning with -25C start to the week

Police incident has closed Highway 97 brake check just north of Williams Lake until further notice

All school buses are running Monday morning, according to the district’s website.

The overnight temperatures didn’t get quite as cold as forecasted, with a current temperature of -22C and wind chill value of -25C.

The wind is expected to kick up a bit in the morning, driving the wind chill to -30C in the morning and -20C in the afternoon and bringing with it a risk of frostbite.

It will likely be an indoor day for students to kick off the school week as the daytime high is only expected to reach -16C.

Drive BC is reporting compact snow with slippery sections on Highway 20 from Williams Lake to the Bella Coola Valley, the Horsefly road and sections of Highway 97.

Drive BC is also warning of a police incident between Mackenzie Avenue North and Commodore Crescent for 1.5 km on Highway 97 just north of Williams Lake.

Insp. Jeff Pelley of the Williams Lake RCMP said the highway is open for traffic, however, the brake check is currently closed until further notice due to a police incident.

More information to come on that as we have it.
