OKANAGAN - After a record-setting weekend, temperatures are back down to seasonal normals and rain is set to welcome and end the week.
Temperatures reached into the mid-teens this weekend, high enough to break a few weather records, but now Environment Canada is calling for temperatures to settle back to down to near-seasonal normals of 8 to 10 Celsius. Overnight lows are expected to start at the seasonal normal of -1 C tonight, March 7, before warming up to a low of just 4 C by Thursday night.
Along with the slightly lower temperatures comes more rain. The weather office is calling for showers to begin by noon throughout the region, and with the snow level rising from 900 metres to 1,200 m this afternoon, some areas can expect more snow as well. A mix of sun and cloud is expected the rest of the week, with a chance of showers Wednesday night and Thursday and rain on Friday.
Drive B.C. is currently reporting foggy conditions along with some slippery sections and water pooling in the North Okanagan and sections of Highway 1 heading towards Revelstoke.
