Flurries expected to be temporary: Environment Canada

While it has been sunny and warm in Kamloops as of late, residents who put away their snow shovels during spring cleaning may have done so prematurely.

Kamloops residents awoke this morning to a surprising amount of the fluffy white stuff.

But before all hopes of sunnier days are gone, Environment Canada is calling for the few wet flurries to end late this morning.

Two centimetres are expected to drop locally followed by a cloudy day nearing a high of 10 C.

The weather is expected to temporarily clear up with a mix of sun and cloud forecasted for tomorrow with highs near 15 C, but scattered showers are expected towards the end of the week.

While a nuisance in the valley, the snow is being welcomed up in the mountains.

Sun Peaks Resort is reporting 19 cm of fresh snow in the last 12 hours.
