Snow at higher elevations

A series of fronts will hit BC over the next few days. The weather systems are tapping into subtropical moisture all the way from the other side of the Pacific – Tropical Storm Pabuk is one of the energizers for the stormy weather this weekend.

This weather pattern will keep rain in the forecast from now until early next week for most areas across the province. Models predict 15-25mm of rain over the next three days for the Okanagan Valley, 20-50mm of rain for the Columbia and Arrow Lakes region, and if you’re heading to the South Coast for the weekend, rain amounts there will vary from 40-100mm of rain.

Please also use extra caution if travelling today as freezing levels this morning are about 1700m and as a result there is a bit a snow on the higher mountain passes including the Okanagan Connector.
