18 Sep 2017 – “We expect the first taste of winter at higher elevations this morning in central and southern BC,” says Special alert issued by Environment Canada.“Don’t be surprised if you see a few flakes over mountain top elevations in the next few days.”
“If the snow makes an appearance on roadways, at most a few centimetres can be expected. With road temperatures still warm from a long and hot summer, the snow is not expected to stick. However, with the possibility of snow in mind, high elevations travellers would be wise to prepare for winter driving conditions. ”
According to the Vancouver Sun, the alert applies to the districts of Boundary, East Columbia, Kootenay Lake, Nicola, Okanagan Valley, Shuswap, West Columbia and West Kootenay.
