THOMPSON-OKANAGAN – It's still winter on the Southern Interior mountain passes and the Coquihalla and Okanagan Connector were both hit with a snowfall warning early today.

The warning issued this morning, April 7 at 2:18 a.m., says snow will start this morning and taper off to a few flurries or showers later today.

The Highway 5 from Hope to Merritt, Merritt to Kamloops and the Highway 97C from Merritt to Kelowna are all covered by the warning.
