Rain continues to fall in town as snow blankets the peaks higher up.

Twenty centimetres of new snow has fallen at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and the base depth is now 100 cm.

In Revelstoke, the day’s high is 2 C with a 60 per cent chance of rain or snow. Tonight’s low of -1 C is expected to bring two centimetres of snow along with it.

Out on the highways, expect seasonal conditions. On Highway 23, DriveBC is reporting slushy, slippery sections between Revelstoke and Shelter Bay as well as limited visibility and fog.

The story is the same on the Trans-Canada Highway, with limited visibility and fog between Three Valley Gap and the western boundary of Glacier National Park.
