Winter is coming to the South Okanagan

Expect temperatures below five degrees and the possibility of snow

Winter is on its way, with a possible chance of snow on Remembrance Day.

Friday will be the last day in the double-digits for the foreseeable future.

According to Environment Canada, starting Saturday Nov. 7, you can expect temperatures to reach highs of less than five degrees.

Saturday is expected to be cloudy, with a chance of rain or snow late in the morning and in the afternoon.

Sunday the sun comes back around for the day, before clouds roll in overnight to stay for the rest of the week.

On Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, those clouds are expected to begin dropping rain or flurries of snow that will carry on into Thursday, Nov. 12, according to Environment Canada.

If you haven’t already put your snow tires on, it’s a good idea to book an appointment before winter arrives in full.

Winter tires are required by B.C. law from October through to April 30.
