High winds are expected to blow across parts of the central interior and Bulkley Valley on Thursday, according to an Environment Canada weather warning.

An intense Pacific cold front will approach the B.C. central coast on Thursday and move into the central interior by evening, the warning says.

Ahead of the cold front, residents can expect southeasterly winds to blow from 30 km/h to 60 km/h by Thursday afternoon. The afternoon forecast also calls for gusts of up to 70 km/h and snow.

By Thursday evening, the steady winds are expected to switch to gusts from the west or southwest, which may reach speeds of nearly 90 km/h in some areas. Between 10 cm and 15 cm of snow is expected to fall by Friday morning.

A second Pacific storm is expected to hit the interior on Saturday, Nov. 26.

Environment Canada is advising the public to monitor area weather forecasts for any additional warnings at visiting www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
