Heavy snow blanketed much of Aberdeen over the weekend, but by Thursday a lot had already melted.

KAMLOOPS - In a city where elevations vary by more than 500 metres, it comes as no surprise that some parts of the city get snow while others are still experiencing fall.

A heavy dump of snow hit on the weekend and stuck around through much of the week in the upper elevation areas like Aberdeen but began to recede as temperatures warmed up towards the end of the week.

A short 10 minute drive into downtown provides a very different season though, with golden leaves littering the ground at Riverside park and people out for runs or rides along the Rivers Trail.

With a chance of rain Thursday night, Friday and Sunday, and snow levels expected to reach the valley bottom, many more parts of the city could see snow before next week. Normal seasonal temperatures and sunshine will likely drive the snow away quickly in the lower elevations though.
