Rain falls as snow in Okanagan mountains

Snow in the mountains

DriveBC tweeted that there was snow atop Anarchist Summit on Highway 3 Monday morning before 8 a.m.

"A good reminder to be prepared for anything when travelling, particularly through higher elevations."

Liz Say lives at Big White and she can attest to snow at higher elevations.

She took several pictures Monday morning as the snow was falling, "there's about a centimetre of snow, it's wet, it's melting off the road."

There was enough snow on the ground to cover part of her deck and yard in the white stuff. Environment Canada forecasts snow above 1,600 metres rising to 2,300 metres Monday afternoon.

"The positivity of snowpack or nice clumps of snow, it just holds the moisture that little bit longer so it'll just feed down to the valley eventually. Everyone's a winner. Just pick the elevation you like," Say said.

Snow was also reported on Silver Star Mountain near Vernon, with the road up the resort looking more like a scene from January rather than June.

Gary Gellert posted a photo in the Vernon and Area Community Forum Facebook group, showing several centimetres of snow on the road.

Environment Canada is calling for a mix of sun and cloud with a 30 percent chance of showers late Monday afternoon.
