As the high winds subside, those in the Shuswap and Revelstoke areas should expect another dusting of snow.

Travellers on Highway 1 between Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass could see an accumulation of up to 15 cm of snow starting tonight (Oct. 27) into Friday morning (Oct. 28) over the elevated highway passes.

According to Environment Canada, a vigorous frontal system moving across the region will give precipitation to Highway 1 at Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass, and rain showers will turn to snow as snow levels drop.

Reduced visibility may be present in some areas of the highway.

Winter tires or chains are required on most routes in British Columbia from October 1 to April 30. The Shift into Winter campaign hopes to draw attention to the hazards of winter driving, to mitigate those moments.
