OKANAGAN - If you haven’t already harvested all your tomatoes you should spend some time covering them up today — there’s a risk of frost through much of the Okanagan tonight.
Environment Canada is calling for a risk of frost tonight, Sept. 21, in the North and Central Okanagan with temperatures expected to dip as low as 2 C tonight and tomorrow night in the valleys. By Wednesday night overnight lows should drop to just 5 C and by the end of the week lows should only hit 10 C, above seasonal normals of 7 C.
In the South Okanagan temperatures should drop to 4 C tonight and then just 2 C Tuesday night. The rest of the week will be much the same as the rest of the Okanagan, with overnight lows gradually increasing to above seasonal normals.
During the day we can expect temperatures to be at or just above seasonal normals of 18 C to start and end the week, with temperatures reaching as high as 23 C during the week.
Skies will clear today and then the sun will stick around for a few days before cloud starts to move in Thursday, along with a chance of rain for Thursday night and Friday.
A high of 28.8 C in Penticton was enough to mark the day as the second warmest day in September so far while Vernon, at 25 C, enjoyed its fourth warmest day of the month. Kelowna fared well Sunday as well, with a high of 27 C. It was windy as well, with gusts of 69 kilometres per hour in Kelowna, 61 km/h in Penticton and 46 km/h in Vernon.
