KAMLOOPS —    Drivers heading through higher elevation areas this morning will get their first taste of winter conditions.

    Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement as a cold front is expected to arrive over the Coquihalla and Rogers Pass regions.

    It warns travellers to expect to see snowflakes around mountain top elevations in the coming days, and although it's not expected to stick to roadways, drivers should prepare for winter conditions.

    The cold front is expected to move toward the Kootenay Pass by Tuesday morning, and the agency says the cold air is expected to hang around through the coming week.
