Caution needed for Coquihalla travel


The Coquihalla summit is looking snowy after a weekend of storms.

Anyone considering driving south should carefully consider their travel plans.

After a weekend of heavy snow and winter weather 15 to 25 cm of snow is expected to fall on the Coquihalla highway from Merritt to Hope.

Environment Canada has issued a warning for the route, stating five to 15 cm fell over the summit last night with an additional 10 cm expected today before the weather system weakens.

Winter tires and/or chains should be used. For updates watch
