KAMLOOPS — Better make sure those winter tires are on.

Jonathan Bau, Meteorologist with Environment Canada, says the city could receive up to five centimetres of snow towards the end of the week.

"There's a particularly strong cold front that's going to sweep across the province that will bring a taste of winter beginning Wednesday night," said Bau. "Temperatures will start to significantly drop and there could be some snow falling to the valley bottom by Thursday night."

Daytime highs are expected to reach only three degrees starting Thursday with overnight lows dipping to -5.

Bau adds the normal temperature the first week of November are highs to around 10 and lows to zero.

As for how long the the white stuff will stick around?

"We'll know more when we get closer but at this time the arctic air seems cold enough and deep enough for the snow to remain for at least a few days."
