The Low this morning is tracking through the northern interior with heavy snows in the vicinity of the low, however the system is filling and moving quite fast.

Over the south moderate to strong south to southwest flow will allow snow levels to peak near 1000 metres in the interior and 1600 metres closer to the warm front on the coast. However snow levels will drop in the wake of the cold front reaching 600 metres along the coast.

Meanwhile moderate amounts of upslope snow are expected in the Coastal mountains and Columbias with light amounts elsewhere.

By Wednesday drier conditions expected as the flow aloft becomes more northerly and airmass dries out so confidence is higher. Weak frontal system moving down the front side of the offshore upper ridge will allow flow to become more northwesterly on Thursday as precipitation spreads over the northwest once again. This system will bring snow to many areas by Friday morning but snow levels will rebound slightly near the coast as the low levels moderate. Cloud and precipitation common across almost all of BC on Friday.
