Heavy snowfall cancels school buses in Fort St John

There was heavy snow in Fort St John on the first day of December. According to Jay Scotland at CBC's weather center, Sunday saw 20-25 cm of snow fall, due to an Arctic ridge coming in from the north.

Scotland says there will be less snow today, although cold weather is expected with temperatures of minus 19, and wind chill of minus 30.

School district 60 for Fort St John and area has cancelled all buses, though schools are still open.
