THOMPSON-OKANAGAN — Mother Nature has a treat for us this weekend—soaring temperatures and lots of sun.
Highs of 24-25 C will be highlighted by sun for much of the day today and by Sunday the entire region will be seeing highs of 28 C with more sun. We can expect to see some cloud cover move in this evening with some cloud mixing with the sun for Saturday.
Next week highs will drop to just below the highs of 22-24 C that are normal at this time of year and through the Okanagan rain could fall Monday as well.
While rivers are mostly receding they are still high in many parts of the province, though the South Thompson River at Chase continues to rise.
Shuswap Lake should peak this weekend and many tributaries in the area have already peaked. The smaller rainfalls forecasted over the next couple of weeks are not expected to impact the lake. Okanagan Lake currently sits just below 1.9 m at Kelowna and has only risen slightly over the past week last week. Skaha and Kalamalka Lakes have both seen water levels drop slightly over the past week.
