OKANAGAN - After a week filled with record temperatures we can expect the mercury to remain closer to normal much of this week.

Today, April 25, is expected to be the coolest this week, with a high of 15 Celsius in the forecast. Environment Canada is then calling for highs of 18 C to 23 C the rest of the week, just above the seasonal normal high temperature of 18 C.

Overnight lows are expected to increase gradually over the week, with a low of 4 C forecast for tonight and 7 C by Thursday night.

The weather office is calling for a mix of sun and cloud throughout the valley this week.

Last week temperatures reached into the high 20s nearly every day in the Okanagan, setting several new high temperature records along the way.
