Winter isn't far away

KAMLOOPS —  Winter isn't quite here yet, but weather was certainly prominent over the weekend. Rain in Kamloops on Saturday was more than we had all of October last year.

We had 18.1 millimeters of rain at the airport, more at the higher levels. Last year we had 17 millimeters in the entire month.

That rain translated up on the Coquihalla to snow, and the RCMP had to issue a travel advisory, but by Sunday the roads were fine.

Frost at the higher levels the past couple of nights, and while temperatures are a little cooler than normal, most of this week should bring us a mix of sun and cloud, with showers later in the week.

Police suggesting if you don't have your winter tires on yet, you should not be heading into the mountain passes, as the sudden storm season appears to be now upon us.
