Snow not likely to last as temperatures are expected to rise on Saturday

Only a light snow fell in Kelowna on Boxing Day
December 27, 2018 - 8:41 AM

KELOWNA - The Thompson-Okanagan’s White Christmas arrived a day late this year and could disappear on the weekend.

Predictions of a few centimetres of snow on Boxing Day did not materialize everywhere, although there was light snow throughout the region.

Environment Canada’s website forecasts a drop in temperature overnight tonight (Dec. 27) to -6 in the North and Central Okanagan, slightly warmer in Kamloops and the South Okanagan.

As temperatures rise on Friday, periods of snow are forecast.

But the temperatures are expected to continue to climb on Saturday, reaching 7 C in Kamloops Saturday and 4 C in the Okanagan. That comes with the chance of rain washing away some or all of Friday’s snowfall.

The sun should shine on Sunday and Monday but, with the clearing skies, temperatures will drop as low as – 9 early next week as the clouds return. But, no snow is forecast beyond Saturday and that will likely be no more than a few flurries.
