Oh no, more snow!

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Okanagan Valley, as two separate storms could combine for plenty of snow and rain.

The first system will bring snow into the region during the day Saturday. Snowfall amounts are expected to range between five and 15 centimetres.

The snow is expected to taper off late this afternoon or evening.

The next system will spread snow to the southern B.C. interior early Sunday morning.

Snow will continue through the day and will begin to change to rain late in the day and through the evening as this storm brings warm air into the region.

The Sunday storm is poised to spread another 5 to 20 cm of snow across the region. Snowfall amounts will be dependent on how quickly the snow changes to rain, with more northern regions expected to get more snow.

Additionally, there is a risk for brief periods of freezing rain during the changeover from snow to rain in some areas. 

Snowfall warnings are in effect for Saturday's storm over the Shuswap and Coquihalla highway.

However, even for regions that remain below the snowfall warning criteria, the combination of two back to back days of snow followed by a change over to rain may make travel and other activities difficult.
