Monday, July 2, 2018, 5:05 PM - While residents in Eastern Canada continue to battle sweltering temperatures, some in British Columbia are experiencing summer snow.

Photos below show a light dusting of snow along the Okanagan Connector (Highway 97C) near Pennask Summit on Monday morning.

The area is approximately 1,700 m above sea level.

"Normally, freezing levels would be closer to 2,500 m. However, a trough has allowed cooler air to settle in over the region. Freezing levels are currently around 1,900 m, with temperatures in the area running about 10 to 15 degrees below the seasonal average," said The Weather Network meteorologist Jessie Uppal.

About 63 km southeast of Kelowna, the Big White Ski Resort also received some light snow.

"Hello snow! July 2 and the top of the Bullet has a nice fresh dusting," the resort tweeted. "Biking and hiking will remain closed for the morning, so feel free to stay cosy and warm in bed."

Temperatures will warm up by midweek across southern B.C. as a ridge of high pressure builds. A southerly flow will bring daytime highs back up to the low to mid 20s.
