Snowfall warning in effect
Dec 16, 2012 / 2:39 pm
Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Central Okanagan and areas could see as much as 20 centimetres fall over the next 24 hours.
“We have a low pressure system from the Pacific Ocean coming on shore tonight and its supposed to track along the Canada and U.S. border through tomorrow,” says meteorologist Chung Au.
“The snow associated with this is going to begin sometime this evening and it looks like it will continue through much of tomorrow.“
The hardest hit areas will be the western portion of the Central Okanagan such as Peachland, Trepanier and West Kelowna -- all of which will see enhanced precipitation.
“You can except to get about 10 cm tonight and then another 10 cm tomorrow. For Kelowna, you will get less snow, we’re expecting between 2-4 cm,” he says.
“Things will clear up on Tuesday for a mix of sun and cloud, before another system makes its way into the Okanagan for Wednesday.”
Snow is also forecasted to accumulate over the Coquihalla Highway with 5 to 10 cm expected tonight and 10 to 20 cm on Monday. The Okanagan Connector is expected to see close to 10 cm fall overnight, with significantly less by Monday afternoon.
