KAMLOOPS — Some good news for Christmas travellers hitting the Coquihalla next week.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Cindy Yew says the greater part of next week is looking snow-free for the province.

"We're expecting a ridge of high pressure to rebuild over B.C starting Wednesday essentially through the Christmas weekend and into Boxing Day. Under that ridge of high pressure we're not expecting any precipitation across the province."

However mother nature isn't done with us quite yet.

Yew says 15 to 20 centimetres of snow is forecast for the Coquihalla Highway Monday night, with two to five centimetres expected to fall in Kamloops Tuesday.

Which means powder lovers may get their wish.

"At least some of that snow should be sticking around until Christmas."
