Keep your toques close by.

The Bulkley Valley and the Lakes District are under a snowfall warning from Environment Canada.

They say on their website that total snowfall accumulation of 10 to 20 cm is expected through tonight.

The warning comes as the cold Arctic air mass slowly gives way to a milder, moist Pacific air mass as a Pacific storm approaches the B.C. coast.

The main part of the storm is expected to arrive at the western sections of the interior later this afternoon and spread to eastern sections early in the evening.

Environment Canada said the public should be prepared to alter their plans or in some cases avoid travel, as per weather and road conditions.
