Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for Highway 3 — Paulson Summit to Kootenay Pass — due to a late snowfall.

Environment Canada said Monday that total accumulations are expected between 15 to 20 cm beginning this afternoon until Tuesday.

“A frontal system moving across British Columbia will give late season snow to Kootenay Pass and Rogers Pass,” Environment Canada said.

“Light snow will begin midday (Monday) and intensify tonight.

“Snow will taper off to a few flurries Tuesday afternoon for Kootenay Pass and Tuesday evening for Rogers Pass.”

Environment Canada said weather can change quickly at higher elevations resulting in hazardous conditions for drivers.
