According to Environment Canada, the storm is led by a low-pressure air system pushing southeast from the northern Alaskan panhandle. People are warned to adjust their driving as heavy snow hits much of southwestern Yukon and Northwestern British Columbia.

Proctor said Whitehorse might see some overnight flurries, but arctic air will return, and the temperature will drop sharply by Wednesday. He said the coming cold would be seasonably typical, with lows of -30C to -35C and highs around -27C. He told me a brisk northerly wind could also be expected.
