DriveBC issued a travel advisory Saturday morning for a portion of Highway 1 running between Golden and Revelstoke.
It says the storm is expected to peak on Monday and may require avalanche control work affecting traffic in both directions.
DriveBC says a closure of up to 8 hours may be required to ensure traveler safety.
The travel advisory covers the stretch of Highway 1 between Highway 23 South and Golden Donald Upper Rd..
It says it will issue another update on Monday.
