It’s expected to be a blustery night in many parts of BC.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement, forecasting south to southwest winds gusting up to 90 kilometres an hour to develop this evening.
“Most areas will see gusts to 70 or 80 km/h but wind prone areas of the Coquihalla – Merritt to Kamloops and the Okanagan Connector may see gusts as high as 90 km/h”.
The weather agency says motorists travelling on the adjacent highway passes are advised to be prepared for strong wind gusts, especially in wind prone areas.
The strong winds will give areas of blowing snow with poor visibility.
