The five-day forecast for Penticton includes heavy snow at times or rain on Tuesday. Environment Canada said Tuesday morning could start out with heavy snow then change to rain mixed with snow in the evening. They are estimating 5 to 10 centimetres of snow with winds gusting to 50 kilometres per hour. Wednesday will have showers with highs of 5 C and lows of O C. Thursday and Friday are expected to be cloudy with lows of -8 C and highs of -3 C.

UPDATE as of 11:45 a.m.:

Environment Canada's snowfall warning for Penticton is now over, but still remains for the North Okanagan and Vernon area.
