VERNON - After temperatures soared into the mid 20s this week in the North Okanagan, Cherryville woke up to a cruel surprise this morning: a dump of snow.

Residents say about two inches of the white stuff fell overnight, blanketing patio furniture, previously green fields, and porches.

Lindsay Myers sent us several pictures of her yard Friday morning, April 24. As of 10 a.m., the snow was sticking around, refusing to melt. 

“It wasn’t a pleasant wake up scene,” Myers wrote. “It was super bright when I woke up, thought it was going to be nice and warm like yesterday, so I looked out the window and saw this.”

We’ve received reports of snow in other areas of the Thompson-Okanagan as well, and invite our readers to send in their photos.
