Sep 16 2021, 1:08 pm

With summer not yet officially over, parts of BC are already seeing some snow.

According to DriveBC, the official Twitter account for BC’s Ministry of Transportation relating to highway information, Merritt and Kelowna, BC, “skipped pumpkin spice” season altogether this week.

Snowfall mainly occurred on the Okanagan Connector.

While there’s no more snow currently forecast for the area, temperatures are hovering in the low 10s.

Less than 24 hours following the tweet, a live cam shows that most of the snow has cleared up on the BC highway.
