THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - Mother Nature is welcoming some Alberta kids back to school in Canadian style today — with a snow storm.

The southeast corner of Alberta, from Brooks to the B.C. border, is currently under a heavy rainfall warning but combined with temperatures hovering not much above zero some areas are instead seeing wet snow.

Back across the border B.C. students remain on an extended summer break as teachers continue to strike following failed mediation over the weekend.

Temperatures in the Southern Interior are expected to be just below normal today, 21-22 Celsius, but will climb to 26-29 C by Saturday. The Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton areas can all expect rain today but will join Kamloops in the sunshine by Thursday.
