While it has been sunny and warm in Vernon as of late, residents who put away their snow shovels during spring cleaning may have done so prematurely.
Vernon 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.
Five to 10 centimetres are expected to drop locally with highs nearing 10 C.
The weather is expected to temporarily clear up with a mix of sun and cloud forecasted for tomorrow with highs near 14 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.
Silver Star Mountain Resort is reporting 17 cm of fresh snow in the last 24 hours.
