UPDATE: It's going to snow tonight: Environment Canada

It's almost time to bring out that shovel.
November 11, 2019 - 2:14 PM

It looks like Old Man Winter might be on our doorstep at last.

According to Environment Canada, Monday night will bring snow to the bottom of the Okanagan Valley. A special weather statement has also been issued for the Shuswap and North Thompson, which will see between five and 15 centimetres of wet snow overnight.

Before snow gives way to rain midday Tuesday, the forecast calls for up to five centimetres of the fluffy white stuff.

However, with a high of 2 C Tuesday and warmer, albeit still cool, temperatures throughout the week, it looks like the snow's visit will be brief. Wednesday will see a high of 6 C and a low of 1 C overnight with similar sun and cloud patterns Thursday. Friday is the warmest time of the week with a high of 9 C and cloudy. The weekend will see a 60 per cent chance of showers and temperatures ranging from 3 to 8 C.

The first snowfall of the year comes a few days later than 2018's first dump, which happened Nov. 9.

Environment Canada's earlier freezing rain and ice pellets warning for the Coquihalla Highway and Okanagan Connector continues.
