THOMPSON-OKANAGAN – Just a few centimetres of snow has fallen on the Coquihalla Highway in the past 24 hours and there's more to come this morning with as much as five centimetres as well as some freezing rain on the way.
Freezing rain has already started near the Portia Exchange on the Coquihalla Highway, where fog is also affecting visibility. Compact snow and slushy sections can also be found on the rest of area highways.
Kamloops, as well as the rest of the Coquihalla Highway and Okanagan Connector, could also see freezing rain this morning, according to Environment Canada. Closer to Hope snowfall amounts are also expected to be closer to the five centimetre range today and more flurries could fall overnight throughout the region.
Temperatures are hovering around the freezing mark throughout the region this morning, and are expected to stay near 0 Celsius for much of the day. Snowfall is expected to reach as much as two to four centimetres in Kamloops, Vernon and Kelowna while Penticton should see just flurries.
