Weekend road report

All routes and highways through the Okanagan are looking clear for travellers on the long weekend. Here is a look at weather and events happening on several major routes.

Highway 1 - Other than some water pooling in some areas due to rain, there are no major incidents or events happening on this route to Hope. The forecast calls for rain through the weekend with thunderclouds on Friday and Saturday. However, it does clear up a little bit on Monday and Tuesday for the drive home.

For travellers going to or from Alberta, there is also a thunderstorm warning through Saturday and rain through Monday. Drivers should keep in mind that between Golden and Revelstoke there are no stops for food, fuel or lodging. 

Highway 3 - Between Hope and Princeton the road looked clear on Friday morning but there is a thunderstorm warning that ends Sunday. There are three short spans of highway undergoing paving or other road work where the route has been reduced to single or alternating traffic. Most of this work should be cleared up by 3 p.m. Friday afternoon and resuming on July 2.

Continuing through to Penticton, the weather forecast is the same but construction and maintenance should be cleared up by 3 p.m. Friday.

Highway 5 - To Kamloops, there are some minor delays due to construction but no major incidents or weather warnings for this route. 

Highway 97C - There will be thunderclouds and rain through the weekend and a lane closure in effect through Saturday June 28 around Loon Lake.
