Wind Chill and Cold Weather Safety
A few days during the year in Kamloops when the temperature is cold, the wind can make it feel even colder. This is called the wind chill factor. Be extra careful on those days as the cold and wind can give you frostbite if your skin is exposed for too long. If you get frostbite, go to the hospital.
Snow Storm and Road Cleaning
When the snow falls in Kamloops be extra careful on the roads. The City clears roads and select sidewalks in priority order by dividing the roads into (1) Arterial Roads that are cleared within 4 hours of the completion of a snow event (2) Collectors and Residential Bus Routes within 16 hours of the end of a storm and (3) Residential Streets within 36 Hours. Priority is given to hills over level streets. You can check the Kamloops Snow Cleaning Priorities Map to know when your street will be plowed after the snowstorm
