KAMLOOPS — If you're venturing out on the highways today, there are special weather statements issued for all mountain passes, including all sections of the Coquihalla, the Hope-Princeton, Paulson Summit and the Rogers Pass.

Environment Canada says as a major warm front approaches, bringing temperatures as high as 16 degrees to Kamloops tomorrow, that will create the possibility of freezing rain later today on those higher areas.

The forecast says it will start out as snow today, changing to rain and possibly freezing rain by this afternoon and into this evening.

Substantial amounts of rain could fall on the Coquihalla between Hope and Merritt and in the Allison Pass area of the Hope-Princeton.
