Snow: no longer on the horizon
Nov 4, 2013 / 3:31 pm
There is already evidence of snow around Kelowna, all one has to do is look towards the tree line. Now there comes word that residents may not have to look up at all, as it will be beneath our feet.
Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist says we could see some snow on the valley bottom come Tuesday morning.
“There is a system moving through tonight that might give snow to the lowest valley bottom in parts of the Central and North Okanagan,” he says.
“Parts of Kelowna, north to Vernon and into the Shuswap could see snow.”
Residents shouldn’t expect a lot of snow, but Lundquist warns there could potentially be one or two centimetres, and cautions drivers to make sure they have their winter tires on.
“It wouldn’t be a lot and it’ll melt by the afternoon, but it will be the first touch of that. A more organized system is coming Thursday, which could potentially bring even more significant precipitation.”
Lundqust is uncertain which way the system will move on Thursday, but wants residents to be aware of the possibility of more snow.
“We’re not guaranteeing it will be a big dump, or hit us directly, but especially in the North Okanagan, it’s looking more likely over the next couple of days.”
