Drive BC now says the ferry is back in operation.

9:35 a.m.

As winter takes hold, expect this more often.

The McLure ferry is closed today due to the ice flow in the North Thompson River, according to Drive BC. An update to the situation is due at 4 p.m. this afternoon.

The weather in Kamloops is expected to stay below freezing throughout the day, says Environment Canada. A high of -7 C is expected during the day, followed by a low of -6 C tonight. Similar temperatures are expected throughout the week.

Upriver, in Clearwater, temperatures are also expected to stay around -7 C today and between -2 C and -12 C for the rest of the week.

The ferry closes annually during the winter freeze-up, with no specific date set.
