VERNON - There could be massive melting early next week if predicted temperatures hold true.
Environment Canada is forecasting a high of 8 C next Monday along with a 30 per cent chance of showers. That would beat the hottest temperature on record for that day in over 100 years, with the current bar set at 7.8 C in 1945.
Temperatures are set to begin climbing this weekend, with highs of 5 C on Saturday and Sunday, accompanied by rain. With all that heat and precipitation, we may have to say goodbye to the snow.
The leisure scene has been a bit quiet, but there are a few things to do in the area.

The magic takes place January 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Salmon Arm Recreation Centre, 2550 Trans-Canada Hwy in Salmon Arm.
If the kids are seeming a bit restless and need something to do that holds their interest, the Okanagan Science Centre is open for business with fun, hands-on activities for kids. The event takes place each Saturday beginning at 1 p.m. The centre is located in Vernon at 2704 Hwy 6.
