Doesn’t look like spring yet

Winter driving conditions continue and a forecast for bright days comes with dropping temperatures.

Highway 1 at Highland Drive east of Sorrento at the Blind Bay turn off

Watch your wheels.

Winter hasn’t had her final say yet.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has advised Drive B.C. that there are slippery sections from Sorrento to 11 kilometres west of Sicamous (51.4 km). and 8 km north of the junction with Highway 97A in Enderby to the junction with Highway 1 in Salmon Arm.

Environment Canada meanwhile, advises there is a 30 per cent chance of flurries today, followed by a few days of brilliant sun.

Bright and sunny days will be accompanied by colder temperatures – minus 13C overnight Wednesday.

And it looks like the dwindling snow piles will be freshened up starting Friday when there is another call for flurries.
