30 cm of snow to fall

The following story may cause eye twitches, screams and arm-flailing... reader discretion advised.

There is a snowfall warning in effect for Fort Nelson. This is not a collection of typos or an old story reported from the winter.

Environment Canada reported Sunday that a long period of snowfall with total amounts of 20 to 30 cm is happening now.

"The combination of an unseasonably cold arctic air mass and Pacific moisture associated with a low on the north coast will result in continued heavy snow for higher elevations between Fort Nelson and Watson Lake," Environment Canada reports. 

"Further snowfall accumulations of 15 to 35 cm are expected through today and tonight. The town of Fort Nelson should receive rain while areas south of Fort Nelson may see up to 10 cm."

The heavy snow is forecast to ease Monday morning, they note. 

Those of us in Okanagan enjoying 30 C temps and sun send our condolences.
