OKANAGAN - Make sure your costumes are either waterproof or you have an umbrella handy because Mother Nature is looking to rain on your Halloween fun this weekend.

Environment Canada is calling for at least a chance of rain throughout the weekend, with showers expected Saturday evening throughout the region.

Temperatures are expected to be above seasonal normals of 8 Celsius throughout the Okanagan, with highs ranging from 11 C to 14 C over the weekend. Overnight lows are also forecast to be quite a bit above seasonal normal of 1 C, with temperatures expected to dip to just 6 C Saturday night.

In the Vernon and Kelowna areas, the weather office is calling for rain to end this afternoon, Oct. 30, and then start again around midnight. On Halloween the forecast calls for rain ending late in the morning and then a chance of showers for the rest of the day. Showers are expected to resume Halloween night.

In Penticton there is a chance of showers today with rain beginning near midnight. Those periods of rain will end in the morning, though a chance of showers remains during the day. Showers are expected to begin again Halloween night.

Temperatures are expected to return back to seasonal normal heading into the first week of November, with highs forecast around 8 C and lows at 2 C for Monday, Nov. 2.
