KAMLOOPS - A freezing rain warning issued earlier this afternoon for Kamloops has ended
Kamloops is still digging out after early 40 centimetres of snow fell at the Kamloops Airport over the course of the snow storm Sunday and Monday. Environment Canada issued a freezing rain warning shortly after noon with temperatures set to remain just below 0 Celsius at the airport through the night.
A winter storm warning remains in effect for the Shuswap and areas east and north of the Shuswap. Black ice, compact snow, slippery sections and slushy sections are being reported on area highways.
School District 73 closed schools for the second day in a row because of the heavy snowfall while city crews work to catch up following the storm.
