Drivers can expect more snow along the Okanagan Connector today.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Highway 97C between Merritt and Kelowna, reporting the Pennask Summit saw nearly 10 centimetres of snow last night and an extra 5 cm is possible before noon today, May 21.

The weather pattern is the result of an unstable airmass, the statement says.

Check Drive B.C. for the latest road conditions.
