Next snowfall expected to bring white to the valleys

OKANAGAN - That dusting of snow seen on mountain tops across the region over the weekend will become a feature of the valley tomorrow morning.

With a system crossing the interior overnight, Environment Canada estimates 2 - 4 cm to fall in the lowest valleys and about 10 cm or more over higher terraines tonight.

Parts of the southern interior can expect very low snowfalls, less than 2 cm, with the southernmost areas possibly escaping.

While early risers could catch a glimpse of the snow and a few falling flakes, eventually it's expected to warm up in the valley enough for the snow to melt, while areas a few hundred metres above will maintain the white, winter glow.

Another storm Thursday and Friday may produce more snow, however the strength and track are uncertain at this time.

Information on winter driving skills and equipment can be found at the Weather Office and Drive B.C.
