A fair warning for commuters between Prince George and the Peace region.

Highway 97 and the Pine Pass has been issued a winter storm watch by Environment Canada as an Arctic front is set to hover through northern B.C. by tomorrow afternoon (March 27).

According to the service, the forecast calls for brief, intense snowfall, which could cause limited visibility at higher elevations and hazardous travel.

Heavier snow is one the way and could accumulate up to 30 cm by Saturday afternoon (March 28) and winds gusting to 60 km/h.

You can check Drive BC for road conditions.

Today's (March 26) winter storm watch took effect before 4 p.m.
