Special weather statement in effect for:
- Central Okanagan - including Kelowna
- North Okanagan - including Vernon
- South Okanagan - including Penticton
A cold spell is in the forecast for most of B.C.
Arctic air will invade B.C. beginning late Friday, with a major shift in temperature from our mild January.
Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees colder than normal for this time of year in the central and southern interior of B.C.
A short period of gusty winds will accompany the cold air's arrival through the interior, and may combine with snow leading to a brief period of blowing snow Saturday.
Temperatures are expected to gradually rise late next week, in early February. However, there remains significant uncertainty on the timing of a return to seasonal temperatures.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
