Heavy snow is expected to blanket areas along Highway 3 from the Kootenay Pass to the Paulson Summit Wednesday evening and into Thursday morning.

According to Environment Canada, a frontal system moving across the southern interior of B.C. may bring with it snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 centimetres before tapering off to a few flurries in the late morning.

Drivers are asked to be prepared to adjust their driving to the changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
