Environment Canada is warning people traveling in the interior of the province over Thanksgiving weekend to prepare for winter weather conditions.
The agency issued a special weather report warning the public of about six inches of snow on most southern road passes on Sunday afternoon.
Drivers are warned that the weather in the mountains can suddenly change and create dangerous driving conditions.
Environment Canada reports rain later on Saturday, but as temperatures drop snow is expected overnight.
He said the Okanagan connector from Merritt to Kelowna, the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Kamloops, and the Trans-Canada Highway from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass should see snow.
The agency asks drivers to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada before hitting the road.
