Black ice potential alert for region

Mainroad East Kootenay Contracting is this evening alerting motorists to expect rain showers and foggy patches across the East Kootenay tonight with the road and air temperatures near or slightly below freezing that brings the potential for black ice in the Kimberley and Moyie areas.

The exception will be Panorama Mountain Resort with light snow for the overnight hours of three to six cm. Showers will continue for Tuesday and flurries for Panorama.

Temperatures drop Tuesday night so any wet surfaces will freeze with snow showers lingering around the region. Mainly dry conditions for Wednesday.

For Crowsnest Pass, there is the potential of two to four cm with potential higher amounts closer to the B.C. border. Just trace snowfall amounts for lower elevations. Temperatures drop Tuesday night with periods of snow forecast generally across the region. Dry conditions return by Wednesday afternoon, Mainroad forecasted.

Motorists should expect unsettled weather, check Drive BC before heading out, drive to the prevailing conditions, and prepare for delays caused by the weather.
