Major roads may be clear and dry in the Valley floor, but the high-elevation Okanagan Connector highway continues to be treacherous with black ice, slush and fog.
"In the past two days, we've seen 15 motor vehicle accidents in the Central Okanagan and a dozen of them have been on the Connector," said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark on Friday.
"All of them could have been prevented if motorists had slowed down and driven to the conditions. When you tailgate or go too fast in slippery conditions and reduced visibility, you end up in the ditch, crash or, in extreme circumstances, roll over."
The worst stretch of road is near the old Brenda Mines where, on Friday, a driver lost control and rolled the car; there were a pair of two-vehicle collisions; and several motorists and their cars came to an abrupt stop in ditches.
Fortunately, there were not any major injuries.
Clark pointed out that the speed limit of 110 km/h on the Connector is for ideal summer conditions of dry roads and unlimited daytime visibility.
With the current winter conditions far from ideal, Clark urges motorists to slow down.
Conditions could worsen further if the 30 per cent chance of snow overnight becomes a reality.
