Snow is expected to start off light with five centimetres through the daylight hours. As the trailing cold front moves through Monday night, snow rates will intensify with 10 to 15 cm likely near the Summit. Snow will taper off early Tuesday morning.

“Weather in the mountains can change suddenly resulting in hazardous driving conditions,” Environment Canada said.
