Brace for more snow

Just when you thought it was safe to head outdoors, Environment Canada has issued another snowfall warning for all of the Okanagan.

A Snowfall warning is now  in effect for:

  •     Central Okanagan - including Kelowna
  •     North Okanagan - including Vernon
  •     South Okanagan - including Penticton

Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected.

A Pacific frontal system will cross southern BC today spreading another band of heavy snow through the region. Snow will start this morning, intensify in the afternoon then continue into Saturday morning. Total snow accumulations up to 20 cm can be expected before the snow tapers off early Saturday morning.

The Okanagan has already been hit with one dump of 20 cm's earlier this week, that broke a 90-year-old record. Now you're being advised to adjust your driving because of changing road conditions.

DriveBC has extended its travel advisory for Highway 97C, and the Coquihalla.  

Kelowna has also implemented a parking ban on designated snow routes as they try to clear off streets ahead of the next big snowfall.
