After a weekend of sunshine and warmer temperatures, Environment Canada is calling for snow on the Trans-Canada Highway.

From Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass, meteorologists are forecasting 10 to 15 cm of snow Monday night into Tuesday morning.

The special weather statement comes as a cold front brings flurries to the region tonight, with the heaviest snow expected near midnight associated with the frontal passage, according to Environment Canada. Heavy flurries will taper off to a few flurries by Tuesday morning.

Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions.
