Winter weather is making its way back into southern B.C. with Environment Canada maintaining heavy snowfall warnings for several areas.
The agency says a low-pressure system that moved into the southern part of the province starting Monday night is expected to stay on until Tuesday, bringing up to 20 centimetres of snow in some areas.
It says the areas affected will include parts of Elk Valley, the Fraser Canyon and Highway 3, along with Lytton, Boston Bar and Hope.
The highway is the only provincial access route into the Interior and remains open to essential traffic only.
Environment Canada says driving conditions may change quickly with reduced visibility because of heavy snow at times.
Metro Vancouver could also see up to five centimetres of snow overnight, although the forecasters say that will depend on elevation levels, with rain expected near the coast.
