Please be advised that we are expecting a sustained snow weather notice for the next two days based on our weather monitoring. We expect the snow to begin early Tuesday, December 21st and end Wednesday, December 22nd, in the afternoon. We are preparing for 10-20cm of snow to fall throughout the area.
The focus of roads cleared will be Priority Focused routes throughout the snow event within Vanderhoof. Please refer to DriveBC for current updates and current road/weather conditions if you need to travel outside of Vanderhoof. DriveBC has excellent webcams available to view highway conditions before heading out, and we kindly remind you to drive according to road conditions for your and other drivers’ safety.
The temperature forecast suggests cold temperatures approaching -20, which would mean any compact snow that forms during this event would have to be sanded and ice bladed.
Please be patient as the District of Vanderhoof Staff and heavy equipment will clear and move snow on the roads.
The last two weather advisories have not delivered the forecasted accumulations. There is the possibility of this happening again. We may see the same snow event occur in and around our area, with accumulations stronger to the north and east.
Public Works will do our best to keep roads open and safe. Should you have any questions regarding this notice, please get in touch with our office at (250) 570 – 1358
