If you were looking up at the Okanagan sky this morning, you may have been treated to a bit of snow.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds left Comox this morning on their way to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, with a stop scheduled at the Penticton Airport to refuel.

The set departure time to get back in the sky is unknown.
