Worst of snow behind us

It looks as though the worst of the snow, at least at the valley bottom, is behind us. For now.

Environment Canada meteorologist Matt MacDonald says the main band of snow, which dropped snow across the Okanagan through Friday morning has now moved east.

"For the next day-and-a-half or so, we're just expecting some light flurries. Nothing more significant," said MacDonald.

"The forecast in effect right now is probably a little bit overdone. So, basically, light flurries on and off throughout today and most of the day Saturday."

MacDonald expects it will begin to clear Sunday, but a return of some Arctic air will bring a temporary return to below-normal cold temperatures just in time for the Family Day holiday.

"Monday will be a cold one," he said.

"There will be a northerly wind, 20 to 40 km/h. It will be a beautiful, crisp day, but you'll definitely want to layer up."

More light flurries are expected to begin Tuesday, before we return to near-normal temperatures of between 2 and -5 C.
