A special weather statement is in effect for the Okanagan Connector from Merritt to Kelowna.
An unseasonably cool airmass has resulted in wet snow occurring near the summit of the Okanagan Connector this morning, according to Environment Canada.
Snowfall accumulations of 2 to 5 cm are possible before the snow changes to rain by this afternoon.
AIM Roads is warning drivers of slippery sections. AIM duty crews have been actively plowing and sanding.
