Environment Canada said rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations, noting visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Between 10 centimetres and 15 centimetres of snow may fall in the higher levels of the Kamloops area overnight Monday and into Tuesday, with smaller accumulations expected at the valley bottom.

The mercury is expected to dip to -1 C overnight, with the temperature rising as the week progresses.
