KAMLOOPS —  Brace yourselves for another dump of snow throughout the province.

There are snowfall warnings out for the South Thompson and Shuswap, as well as the Coquihalla from Hope to Merritt.

We're expecting 15 centimers of snow in the Thompson-Shuswap region starting late this afternoon or early this evening.

For the Coquihalla, we're looking at 15-20 centimeters of snow.

By tomorrow morning, we're expecting much of that to have finished moving through the interior, but it could be heavy sledding for the Monday commute as crews try to clear things away.

At the coast, there's a special weather statement out.

A mix of snow and rain will begin this afternoon, giving 2-5 centimeters of snow in much of Vancouver, more at the higher levels and into the Fraser Valley.

There is a threat of freezing rain as well for parts of the Lower Mainland.
