It’s true what they say: winter is coming.

Or, rather, it’s already here.

There appears to be no end in sight to the cool weather as Environment Canada reports the Okanagan-Shuswap week-long day-time high at 4 Celsius Friday and Saturday accompanied by a chance of flurries. During the week, temperatures are expected to hover around -1 Celsius throughout the region, dipping to a low of -11 overnight Monday.

Given the forecast following a weekend of drivers battling the relentless road conditions, drivers are urged to exercise caution while travelling. For current road conditions, stay tuned to DriveBC.
