Environment Canada calling for snow on Okanagan Connector

If you're headed to the Lower Mainland from Kamloops and the Okanagan tomorrow, you might want to consider snow tires.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement today, Sept. 18, informing drivers Highway 97C around Pennask Summit could experience between two to four centimetres of snow tomorrow night and into Wednesday morning.

The weather office says a low pressure system moving through the Southern Interior tomorrow is the reason for the precipitation. Freezing levels are expected to drop close to 1,700 metres so snow is likely at the summit.

Drivers are advised to be cautious of changing conditions as weather in the mountains can change suddenly.
