Flurries are expected in areas above 1300-1500m elevation. However, flurries could briefly descend to lower elevation areas as well.

Most southern highway passes are forecast to receive about 2 to 5 cm of wet snow overnight through Friday morning. As for the Okanagan Connector, up to 10 cm of snow can fall.

Looking at Friday, the flurries will change to precipitation as the day moves along.
