The flurries may result in five to 10 centimetres of snow over the Coquihalla Summit, Allison Pass, Paulson Summit and Kootenay Pass.

It says the weather in the mountains can change suddenly and create hazardous driving conditions.

DriveBC has been reminding drivers that winter tires or chains are required until April 30 on select highways, including mountain passes and rural routes in high snowfall areas.
