Hope you didn't pack away the shovel just yet, the Southern Interior is getting another dump of snow today.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Okanagan, South Thompson and high elevation highways in the Southern Interior today, Feb. 17.

Heavy snow began early this morning and is forecast to ease off later tonight.

The total snowfall accumulations for Kamloops, Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton will range between 10 to 25 centimetres. The Okanagan Connector and the Coquihalla Highway can expect 20 to 30 cm of snow today and Drive B.C. has issued a travel advisory for both those routes.

Environment Canada says accumulating snow may make it difficult to navigate highways, roads, walkways and parking lots.

Drivers should expect blowing snow and reduced visibility on the roads.
