Freezing rain warning issued for Coquihalla

Freezing rain could fall on the Coquihalla Highway tomorrow afternoon (Jan. 18), warns Environment Canada.

The weather service issued a warning for the stretch of road from Merritt to Hope, beginning Saturday afternoon and running through to Sunday.

"A strong storm system will bring snow to the Fraser Valley tomorrow. Warm air aloft pushes inland that afternoon and freezing rain is expected for portions of the Coquihalla and the Hope Princeton Highways, near Hope," reads the alert. "Higher elevations of these routes will likely see a transition to rain showers late in the day on Saturday."

If you're planning on travelling down to the Lower Mainland during the weekend, the sooner the better.
