OKANAGAN - After a weekend of below normal temperatures we can expect things to warm up this week, eventually climbing to highs in the mid-30s.
Environment Canada is calling for highs of 21 Celsius to 24 C throughout the valley today, May 30, with highs of 25 C to 28 C expected the rest of the week. Come the weekend we can expect to see temperatures reach highs of 33 C and 34 C though. The seasonal normal high for this time of year is 21 C.
The temperature is expected to drop to 5 C in Kelowna, 7 C in Vernon and 8 C in Penticton tonight, just below the seasonal normal of 9 C. Tuesday night is expected to drop to 9 C throughout the valley with a low of 12 C expected the rest of the week.
A mix of sun and cloud is expected today and tomorrow throughout the Okanagan, followed by cloud cover Wednesday and Thursday. Friday is expected to bring a mix of sun and cloud along with a chance of showers followed by lots of sunshine over the weekend.
