First white stuff of the season falling Friday morning; won’t be around long

Let it snow.

The Okanagan’s first snowfall of the season has arrived.

Environment Canada says the snow won’t be here long. Rain and snow mixed is forecast for Friday morning in Vernon, turning to chance of showers in the afternoon. Sun, lots of it, and cloud are projected for the next week.

For Kelowna, wet snow is forecast for Friday morning and ending Friday afternoon (2 cm accumulation). Then, the forecast calls for mainly cloudy skies over the next week.
