KAMLOOPS — If you plan on hitting area highways over the next little while, don't be surprised if you encounter some white stuff falling from the sky.

Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist confirms it's cool enough that we could get some flurries over the next few days, possibly upwards of two centimetres.

"Mainly on the Coquihalla Summit, so the pass between Merritt and Vancouver and there might even be some flurries mixed with snow on the road between Merritt and Kamloops and the Pennask Summit between Merritt and Kelowna."

He notes snowfall this time of year is nothing any of us should be surprised by.

"Oh, absolutely. We can see snow even in July on the higher terrain and it's usually the end of August, early September, where we see it. It's why we have chain up season already. We'll start to see greater accumulations as time goes by."
