South Cariboo residents are still feeling the affects of heavy snow and strong northwest winds.
Earlier this morning (November 7) Environment Canada issued a Snowfall warning for 100 Mile House with total accumulations expected to be 10 to 15 centimeters.
They also put out an alert for Highway 97 from Clinton to 100 Mile House.
“Sometime after 2 pm the snow will be tapering off to a chance of flurries,” Derek Lee, Meteorologist for Environment Canada said, “We’re looking at another 5 centimeters in the forecast for today and there will be some gusty winds through the 100 Mile House area and also through the Highway 97 corridor 30 gusting to 50 so combined with that falling snow we’ll see some local blowing snow as well.”
Lee noted that the Arctic will stay in place for much of this week.
“Temperatures are looking like they’ll be below seasonal by at least 5 to 10 degrees per day. Towards the weekend we may see some slight warming where daytime highs may get up to minus 4 or 5 degrees.”
