KELOWNA - The Okanagan valley can expect a mix of snow and rain this week as daily highs move above and below the freezing mark.

Environment Canada meteorologist Bobby Sekhon says a weak system moving through the region over the next couple of days will bring up to two centimetres of snow to the Okanagan tomorrow with scattered flurries and rain showers to follow on the heels of a mild temperature trend.

Today, Jan. 8, valley residents will see increasing cloudiness with a 30 per cent chance of flurries this afternoon. The high of -2 Celsius will seem like -14 C with the 15 km/h winds expected.

Up to two cm of snow is expected tomorrow with a high of 0 C and low of -2 C. The Coquihalla Highway could see five to 10 cm of snow tomorrow as well.

Thursday will see a high of 2 C with a 60 per cent chance of rain or snow showers. A mix of sun and cloud and a high of 1 C is forecast for Friday.

Normal temperatures at this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of around -2 C and lows of about -8 C.
