KELOWNA - Kelowna is a few centimetres away from breaking the record for snowfall today.

Environment Canada meteorologist Allan Coldwells says if the snow keeps falling the way it has all day, Kelowna will set a new snowfall record today, Dec. 28.

Coldwells says forecasters won't have the official snowfall numbers until late in the day.

Kelowna is looking to break the snowfall record set back in 1923 when the city was blanketed under 15.2 centimetres of snow.

Kelowna is only a few centimetres from that record and there is another five to 10 cm of snow is expected today with an additional five cm overnight, Coldwells says.

Even with more snow expected tomorrow, Kelowna has a long way to go before it breaks the all-time record snowfall of 40.6 cm on Dec. 11,1927.
