FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John and the Peace Region is currently experiencing colder temperatures as a frontal system makes its way through the area.

According to Environment Canada Meteorologist, Matt MacDonald, a late-season arctic front has pushed down from the Yukon and into Northeastern B.C. bringing colder temperatures and snow flurries.
