Mountain Snow

School District 22 says no buses will be able to pick up Monday morning at Silver Star due to the road conditions.

It was snowy on the upper elevation highways over the weekend, and at two Okanagan ski resorts.  Environment Canada meteorologist Trevor Smith says from Saturday to Sunday morning Big White received about 14 centimetres, while Silver Star got around 22.

He says while all this snow in June may surprise some people it's pretty typical, "I don't think it is a record at all.  Meteorologists around BC call June the cold low month or call it June-uary you know as a joke, that it often can be quite cold so you know its not an everyday occurrence to see snow at the ski resorts, but it is definitely not unheard of at this time of year"

Smith says there could be a couple more centimetres of wet snow, Monday morning and there is a Special weather statement in effect for the Coquihalla, Connector and Highway 3. 

After Monday - he's forecasting a warming trend. By Saturday the forecast is call for sunshine and a high of 27,  29 degrees by Sunday.  Smith says the cold front is now moving into Alberta and warmer temperatures are in the forecast for the week.
