Watch: Boxing Day flooding on Highway 99 in Whistler

Plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time
Stay safe out there this Boxing Day.

Heads up to anyone planning some post-Christmas travelling this Boxing Day morning: You might be in for an adventure.

A video sent to Pique on Boxing Day morning shows heavy flooding on Highway 99 between Creekside and Blueberry.

It has been an interesting few days on local highways, to say the least, after severe driving conditions prompted a rare weather-related closure of the highway on Christmas Eve.

Adding to the turmoil was a gas shortage at Whistler's Creekside Husky (expected to be resolved as of today).

Today's forecast calls for heavy rain this morning, shifting to light rain and then snow in the afternoon and evening, and highs of about 0 degrees C.

Give yourself plenty of time if you have to travel, and check for the latest updates.
