Weather warning

A big storm heading our way starting Tuesday could ensure we get a white Christmas after all.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for all of the Okanagan, including Penticton; Kelowna and Vernon.

Expect significant snow Tuesday followed by colder temperatures on Thursday.

A deepening Pacific low-pressure system will track up and across northern Washington state Tuesday. This system will combine plentiful moisture with cool northerly winds near the surface. The result will be heavy snow starting tonight and continuing through Wednesday morning for most communities in the southwestern Interior and Kootenays.

Storm total snowfall amounts will range from 15 to 25 cm with the highest amounts falling near the U.S. border.

Some regions in the Kootenays may get more than 25 cm from this storm.

A break in the weather is forecast later Wednesday before an Arctic front sweeps through on Thursday. The Arctic front will bring a few flurries and, more noticeably, colder air to the southern interior for the rest of the week. Overnight lows will drop to between minus 10 and minus 15; daytime maximums will be several degrees below zero.
