Here comes the rain

Rain returns to the Okanagan and Shuswap following several days of sun

It was a short lived start to spring.

Monday was the official start to the spring season; however after the sun went down and the clouds rolled in, it appeared to feel like winter again.

Mountain passes received light snow overnight which turned to flurries Tuesday morning — and the snow level is reported to have risen to 1500 metres.

Rain and wet flurries are forecast for the day in areas of the Okanagan and Shuswap.

Temperatures will hover around 3 C, but may increase as the week progresses to the high single digits.

Showers are expected on and off throughout the week, with light flurries in the mountain passes.

In the North Okanagan a dust advisory remains in place due to high concentrations of coarse particulates, which are expected to persist until there is a change in current weather conditions.
