Okanagan residents could be shovelling snow tomorrow

Snow shovels may be the outdoor implement of choice this weekend with a forecast calling for snow in the Okanagan on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

It may not yet be time to exchange snow shovels for rakes in the Okanagan.

Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa Erven says the Okanagan will be on the western edge of a moisture-laden system coming out of California that should see snow fall in most parts of the valley on Saturday, March 7.

“The flow of the system is mainly north-south oriented, so we don’t expect to see much difference in snowfall gradient up and down the valley,” she said.

It looks like Kamloops will avoid most of the snow with the forecast calling for a 40 per cent chance of rain showers or snow flurries tomorrow.

Up to five centimetres is expected in Penticton. Two to four centimetres could fall in Kelowna and Vernon before changing to rain showers near noon.

Tomorrow’s high is expected to reach 5 Celsius in all three cities, which is slightly below the 7 C usual at this time of year.

The sun is expected to return Sunday with a high of 6 C.
