First signs of winter on the Coquihalla.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Hwy 5.

Forecaster Jim Goosen says there is a chance of wet flurries near the summit throughout the morning.

"If it does snow at all, it will likely not stick on the road. The pavement temperature is too warm, and there won’t be that much precipitation."

Goosen says some sections of the highway experienced wet snow yesterday, but there was little to no accumulation.

He is expecting any snow this morning to taper off by the afternoon.
