Residents are still digging out from the first winter storm of the season.
Environment Canada says most of the North Okanagan got between 15 and 21 cm’s of snow.
“Some notable points would be in an around the Kalamalka area (Vernon-Coldstream). We have a highway station there that recorded 21 centimetres. Down towards Kelowna, our site recorded 19 cm’s, and then up to Salmon Arm, our highway site came in with 21 cm’s,” says meteorologist Lisa West.
Silver Star is reporting 39 cm’s of new since Thursday.
West says there probably won’t be any more snow the next few days — but it will stay cold.
“The cold air mass is going to stay in place until at least Tuesday of next week before we start to see any real warming trend. By Wednesday, we’re getting up to highs of plus 5.”
West says pretty much all areas south of 100 Mile House got snow.
“The southern third of the province received precipitation.”
