The cool wet weather over the Southern Interior has brought snow to two of the four main regional ski resorts today.

Webcams from Big White Ski Resort just before 8 a.m. today, June 14, show snow in the village, although it doesn’t register any snowfall amounts on its website.

Apex Mountain doesn’t have a webcam showing the bottom of the mountain but shows a good amount of snow at the top of the quad lift.

Environment Canada has posted a special weather statement for the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt where, as of 7:38 a.m., about five centimetres of wet snow had accumulated, although none was showing on the Coquihalla Summit webcam.

Another five to 10 cm of snow are expected before it tapers off or turns to rain by noon.

No snow is seen at the Coquihalla Summit even through Environment Canada reports 5 cm over the mountain pass.

A special weather statement was also issued for the Central and North Okanagan this morning.

It says 10 to 25 millimetres of rain have fallen across the region since yesterday and another 10 mm are expected before the rain tapers off into a few showers this afternoon.
