More snow may be on the way

Expect to see a busy Town of Osoyoos crew as more snow comes to the South Okanagan.

Just as things were starting to thaw, it looks like we might have to dig out again.

The national weatherman is warning more snow may be on the way for the South Okanagan, with up to 15 cm expected by Thursday evening.

“An approaching Pacific front will track inland and across southern BC on Thursday,” a special weather statement from Environment Canada reads.

“The Pacific moisture will combine with a modified Arctic airmass to give snow to many Southwestern Interior and Kootenay regions and highway mountain passes.”

Snow is expected to begin overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning with snowfall amounts of 5 to 15 cm expected by Thursday night before the snow tapers to flurries.

Similar statements are in place for the Similkameen and Boundary regions as well as Hwy. 3 between Hope and Princeton and Osoyoos and Grand Forks and Hwy. 97C between Peachland and Merritt.

Environment Canada said it may issue “snowfall warnings” later today once computer models come to a consensus on the track of the system.
