Snow could make an early appearance throughout much of the B.C. Southern Interior by tomorrow, according to a special weather statement from Environment Canada. 

We can definitely expect 10 to 15 cms on most highway passes overnight tonight, but the question is whether we'll see it in town in the South Thompson, Nicola, Okanagan Valley and Shuswap regions. An arctic front is moving through the interior and it will produce precipitation but no one's sure exactly what that will look like on the ground.

"For most communities in the southwest interior valleys, there is significant uncertainty with the precipitation type, whether rain or snow will fall," the weather statement says. "Kamloops, Salmon Arm, and the north Okanagan will see precipitation phase changes as the Arctic front moves across the region southwards.

As the storm develops, the statement could be upgraded to a watch or a warning. Keep an eye on the latest changes here.
