The agency added: “Snow will ease late this morning.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.”

The alert adds to an earlier warning about a snowstorm on the Trans-Canada Highway from Eagle to Rogers Pass.

“A slow moving frontal system will remain over the BC interior today,” that alert read.
