Vernon locals Shanda Hill and her father had fun making ice creations on Duck Lake.

In a Facebook post, Hill and her father carved out icy hearts, a chair, bench and an igloo.

“Each one of those blocks weighs about 50 pounds,” Hill said in the video indicating towards the igloo. She asked viewers to guess how much the igloo weights.

In a separate video, Hill returned to the scene at night with a generator, to light up the igloo in a stunning purple hue.

Snow is expected to fall across the Southern Interior today but the biggest weather change will be on mountain passes, which could see quite a significant accumulation of snow.

A snowfall warning is being continued for the Coquihalla, from Hope to Merritt, with somewhere between 15 to 25 centimetres expected to fall.

"A frontal system will cross the B.C. interior today, spreading heavy snow to parts of the southern highway passes," an Environment Canada weather alert stated.

"Heavy flurries will continue Sunday night as an unstable airmass will setup over the province in the wake of the front. Total snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 centimeters are expected by Monday morning. Snow will ease on Monday as the the system weakens."
