West Kooteany/Boundary residents should brace for another Snowfall Warning for the region.

Environment Canada issued the alert Thursday morning for Highway 3, Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass.

Snowfall amounts are expected between 10 to 25 cm beginning Thursday and into overnight.

“A cold front tracking across the interior will give snow beginning (Thursday) morning,” the Environment Canada statement said.

“Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 25 cm can be expected before the snow eases overnight.”

Environment Canada advises drivers to be prepared to adjust driving with changing road conditions as visibility is most likely to be reduced while driving.

“Turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance,” Environment Canada said.

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

The website Shift Into Winter reminds drivers to be prepared before trips and to adjust to winter driving behaviour and use winter tires and chains.

Road conditions are available at DriveBC.

The Environment Canada forecast calls for snowfall continuing into Sunday with temperatures hovering around zero C.
