KAMLOOPS — Parts of Kamloops awoke to the first snowfall of the season.

Residents in Aberdeen and higher parts of Barnhartvale and Juniper Ridge got around two centimetres of the white stuff.

Matt MacDonald with Environment Canada says the Coquihalla was the hardest hit.

"As we moved up the Coquihalla - definitely heavier snow up there, 7cm and counting. We are expecting 10cm-15cm by the time it is all said and done," explained MacDonald.

MacDonald adds this weather is the start of the regular winter season for Kamloops with more seasonal highs of 4°C and lows of -2°C expected for the rest of the week.
