Snowflakes were falling on the Okanagan Connector this morning.

Drive BC recorded flakes falling at around 10 a.m. on its Highway 97C road camera.

Currently, there is no special weather statement for the Okanagan, but Environment Canada is predicting rain for Saturday and Sunday.

Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist says a cold front last night is expected to drop temperatures and spread showers across the Thompson Okanagan this weekend.

Lundquist says yesterday’s southerly flow is bringing multiple storm cells up from the south, along the Cascade mountains in Washington and into the Okanagan valley towards Revelstoke.

“It’s why I call it monsoon season," Lundquist said. "In winter, the jet stream brings most of our weather in a westerly flow, but in spring, heating of the continent produces a default ridge of high pressure from Alaska down through British Columbia.”
