FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A wind warning remains in place for the North and South Peace and now a snowfall warning has been issued for the North Peace.

A wind warning issued on Monday is still in effect, but the forecast calls for the wind to diminish Tuesday morning as the low moves into Alberta. Until that happens the region could see strong wind gusts up to 70 km/h with gusts over 90 km/h.

Environment Canada has also issued a snowfall warning for the B.C. North Peace. The warning says a low pressure system will move through Northern B.C. Tuesday night and bring rain and wet snow to Northeast B.C.

Areas closest to the Rocky Mountain Range including Buckinghorse Lodge, Sikanni Chief and Hudson’s Hope could see up to 15 cm of snow by Wednesday morning. Fort Nelson and Fort St. John will see a smaller amount of snow.

See both warnings below.
