Non-essential travel is not advisable under this warning.

Surfaces, including roads, walkways and parking lots will be icy.

"A stationary Pacific frontal system will continue to give freezing rain mixed with snow to the Sea to Sky Highway north of Squamish," reads the alert.

The freezing rain should be limited to north of Brandywine Falls by this afternoon and then just in Whistler by late afternoon.

Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

Current road conditions are available at www.drivebc.ca.

For the rest of the week, lots of rain is expected — the current forecast doesn't even show a spot of sun all week — and warmer temperatures of between 4C to 7C will be sure to wash whatever snow is left away.

Monitor current alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
