Second snowstorm expected to hit B.C. Interior over weekend

Five to 10 more centimetres are forecasted to fall Sunday evening

B.C.’s interior will be hit with a douse of snow as forecasters anticipate a second low pressure system in just two days.

The first system moved across B.C. Friday night, depositing 22 centimetres of snow over the Coquihalla summit and continuing on into Saturday morning.

Johnson Zhong, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said he expects five to 10 more centimetres to fall on Saturday before a second system moves in on Sunday.
