Snowfall Warning ended, as heavy snow stays south of Merritt.

Environment Canada's Doug Lundquist says there was the possibility of as much as 15cm falling at the valley bottom yesterday.

Instead, the Nicola Valley received only a light dusting.

"It was a low-pressure system that ended up staying mostly south of the border, in northern Washington and out towards Spokane, and that direction. Whereas, here in BC it largely missed the areas further north."

The Coquihalla from Merritt to Hope received about 5cm of snow yesterday.

Lundquist adds there is a chance the Nicola Valley could see another dusting of snow this afternoon.
