Kelowna Airport communications officer Jessica Hewitt said travelers should do their due diligence and ensure they arrive safely.
“We are encouraging people to check the status of their flight before they head to the airport,” said Hewitt.
“People should give themselves lots of time to get here because it’s looking like the road conditions aren’t great at the moment.”
Between 20 and 30 cm of snow is expected to have fallen by this evening in the Okanagan and much of the interior.
