First fall weekend warm and sunny in the Okanagan

OKANAGAN - The first weekend of autumn will be a typical one in the Okanagan, with warm days and cool nights.

Environment Canada is calling for temperatures to be just above the seasonal normal high of 17 Celsius throughout the Okanagan, though overnight we can expect things to cool off a bit more than normal.

Temperatures are expected to reach the 18 C or 19 C today, Sept. 25, through Monday in Kelowna but overnight temperatures will likely drop below the seasonal normal low of 7 C, with a low of 4 C expected tonight and 3 C expected Saturday and Sunday night.

Vernon residents can expect the same out of daytime highs and overnight lows, except tonight when temperatures are expected to drop to 6 C.

The South Okanagan will be a bit warmer today, with a high of 20 C and a low of 8 C expected, but the rest of the weekend will much the same as the rest of the Okanagan.

There is a 60 to 70 per cent chance of showers throughout the entire region this morning but skies will clear either today or tomorrow morning and the rest of the weekend is expected to be sunny.
