Warnings

3:57 PM PDT Thursday 30 October 2014
Blizzard warning in effect for:

  • Dempster

Blizzard conditions with gusty winds and visibility frequently near zero in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring.

A low pressure system will move into the southern Yukon early this evening generating northeast winds of 80 gusting to 100 km/h near the Richardson mountains, causing blizzard conditions. The blizzard is expected to ease Friday afternoon once the northeast winds diminish.

Travel is expected to be extremely hazardous due to reduced visibility. Protect yourself from wind, cold and disorientation by staying sheltered, indoors or with your vehicle.

Blizzard Warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please monitor local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to pacificstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #BCStorm in British Columbia and #YKStorm in Yukon.
