Keep those shovels handy! A snowfall warning has been issued for Prince George. 

Environment Canada is calling for 15 to 20 cm of snow and says people should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and take necessary safety precautions. 

The government organization says a total of 15 to 20 cm of snow will fall between Monday morning and Tuesday morning as a warm front moves across the area.

Snow will begin overnight for areas near Vanderhoof and Fort St. James, then spread into the Prince George and Quesnel areas by Monday morning and lastly into the McGregor region by midday.

For the Prince George region, area highways will likely see more snow than the city so travellers are advised to exercise caution.

Some areas may see a brief break in the snow early Monday afternoon but the snow will resume late Monday afternoon and end Monday night.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Take frequent breaks and avoid strain when clearing snow.
