Snowfall is causing chaos on area roads and highways with multiple accidents throughout North Okanagan.

Highway 97A, next to the Tolko mill in Spallumcheen, has fully re-opened but was narrowed to single-lane traffic in both directions due to an accident earlier in the day.

Motorists are asked to take extreme caution while driving.
