Those cooler than usual temperatures have come down from the north, and even have the Coquihalla flirting with some snow.
Forecaster Matt McDonald says for the northern parts of B.C and the Southern Interior, there’s been an early taste of winter this week…
“I mean, the northern half of B.C, they saw upwards of 8 centimetres earlier in the week, and then residents in the 100 Mile area woke up to a few centimetres on the ground.”
As for the Coquihalla, and the Connector, McDonald says both have been hanging around that zero degree mark, but so far only a few wet snowflakes have hit the highways.
“For the South Thompson, you know, we’re just looking at a chance of showers perhaps mixed with a few wet flakes at times for the next few days here. Highs only getting up to 15 degrees.”
McDonald says that’s about a full 7 degrees below normal for this time of year.
