Okanagan weather: More snow, positive temps ahead

Pockets of light snow slid through the valley to start the second week of March on Monday with snowfall warnings in effect for Rogers Pass, Paulson Summit and the West Columbia region.

Temperatures in the Central Okanagan slid back to -2 under mostly cloudy skies to start the day with clouds and the risk of a few flurries continue into the afternoon.

After reaching an afternoon high a few degrees above freezing, a second surge of snow slides into the valley Monday night with 2 to 4 centimetres possible in the valley bottom.

Snow will continue into Tuesday morning, making for a sloppy morning commute as the mercury sits just shy of the freezing mark.

2 to 4 centimetres of snow is possible in the valley by late Tuesday.

Snow will start to ease during the day with a risk of rain mixing into the precipitation picture midday before clouds start to clear out of the area with a chance of some late day sunny breaks.

Once temperatures climb up to around 4 degrees late in the afternoon, they’ll fall back down to around -6 into Wednesday morning with a mostly sunny start to the day.

Lots of sunshine is expected to dominate the day with a daytime high making it up to around 5 degrees.

Thursday will bring by another risk of light flurries at times with clouds lingering on Friday before sunny breaks return this weekend with afternoon highs hopping up into the 7 to 9 degree range, so lots of melting snow is expected!
