Muncho Lake Park – Stone Mountain Park, B.C. (088200)
A cold upper trough of low pressure over the province has created a moist easterly flow over northeast BC. Rain that developed last night will persist trough today and Saturday resulting in total amounts of 60 mm or more over eastern sections. In addition, snow levels will lower to near 1100 metres this evening and then gradually to at or near valley bottom on Saturday. Consequently, higher elevations will likely receive snowfall amounts up to 20 cm during this period.
