Hazardous conditions are in the forecast for the Trans-Canada Highway in B.C., from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass.
Environment Canada said snow is expected in a long-duration winter storm in parts of the Columbia Mountains between Wednesday and Friday.
Up to 30 centimetres of snow can be expected by Thursday night, according to the national weather agency forecast. An additional 10 cm can be expected on Friday, possibly bringing totals reaching 40 cm.
Motorists are warned to be careful with the road conditions potentially turning dangerous in the days to come.
B.C. highways have been devastated by recent floods and some are not expected to get back up to driving standards for months.

The most noticeable hit to the province’s network is on the Coquihalla Highway.
The highway remains closed from Hope to Merritt and it likely will remain that way for some time. An aerial assessment has now been completed and the Ministry of Transportation said repairs are going to take months.
The highway between Spences Bridge and Boston Bar remains closed. Temporary repairs are underway and it is expected to be weeks before that area can open.
Highway 8, from Merritt to Spences Bridge, is closed and still undergoing an assessment.
