Get ready for more snow this week — potenially lots of it on Thursday.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the expected heavy snowfall that could drop another  to 15 cm of snow by Thursday night in much of the southern interior including the South Thompson, Nicola, Similkameen, Shuswap, Okanagan Valley and of course all mountain passes in the region. 

"An approaching Pacific front will track inland and across southern B.C. on Thursday," the statement reads. "The Pacific moisture will combine with a modified Arctic airmass to giving snow to many Southwestern Interior and Kootenay regions and highway mountain passes. Snow will begin overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning with snowfall amounts of 5 to 15 cm expected by Thursday night before the snow tapers to flurries."

Snowfall warnings may be issued for these regions later today once computer models come to a consensus on the track of the system.
