Summertime snow is falling again on a B.C. highway

Snow is once again falling on the Okanagan Connector Thursday night.

Despite summer officially kicking off almost a week ago, the Okanagan Connector (Highway 97C) is covered in snow at the Pennask Summit, making for treacherous driving conditions.

Castanet has received reports of a rollover on the Connector Thursday night, and there is reportedly a large amount of standing water on some stretches of the highway.

The wintery conditions appear to be limited to the Connector at this time. Highway cams from the Coquihalla Summit and Kootenay Pass show no signs of the white stuff, although conditions look pretty soggy.

Last week, snow fell on the Connector on both Wednesday and Thursday.
