Special Weather Statement

Issued at 22:28 Friday 14 December 2018
Summary

A very intense cold front will move across the southwest interior tonight. South to southwest winds gusting up to 90 km/h will develop this evening.

Most areas will see gusts to 70 or 80 km/h but wind prone areas of the Coquihalla - Merritt to Kamloops and the Okanagan Connector may see gusts as high as 90 km/h.

Motorists travelling on the adjacent highway passes are advised to be prepared for strong wind gusts, especially in wind prone areas. The strong winds will give areas of blowing snow with poor visibility.

The threat of strong wind gusts will diminish Saturday morning.
