“A slow-moving arctic front will bring the first snow of the season to the Columbia and Kootenay region,” said Environment Canada.

Roughly five to 10 centimetres of snow could accumulate on the Trans-Canada Highway, including Eagle Pass and Rogers Pass, between Monday Morning and Tuesday afternoon.
