Detailed Forecast

Overcast with snow expected through tonight, at times moderate overnight. Total snowfall amounts of 15-20 cm are possible by tomorrow morning. Moderate to strong ridge winds are expected today/tonight (wind gust up to extreme possible tonight). Freezing levels between 1300-1500 m today and tonight.

Synopsis

A frontal system is expected to continue bringing snow and moderate ridge winds today with freezing level near 1500 m. A Pacific low is expected to redevelop over the central BC interior this afternoon bringing further snow into early tomorrow morning (at times moderate overnight tonight) as well as moderate to strong ridge winds (gusts up to extreme possible this evening/overnight). A series of impulses courtesy of the unsettled pattern is expected to bring scattered flurries tomorrow and Friday.

3 to 5 Day Outlook

A slightly stronger impulse is expected to move over the region Saturday with periods of snow expected. Finally, a chance of isolated flurries is possible on Sunday as the impulse weakens.

Resort Elevations:

Valley Base (City of Kelowna) - 344m (1,128 ft)
Bottom of Gem Lake Express – 1,511m (4,957 ft)
Village Centre – 1,755m (5,757 ft)
Summit – 2,319m (7,606 ft)

Visitors should be aware that mountain weather can be variable and change quickly. Daytime temperatures can be 5C to 10C degrees cooler at the summit and sky conditions may vary with elevation. Summit levels are also often breezier as wind flows unimpeded by trees and buildings. If you are headed to the top, be prepared, dress appropriately and you be sure to enjoy all that Big White Mountain Resort has to offer. We will update our Weather Forecast daily during our Summer Hours of Operation.
