In Penticton the temperatures will be a bit warmer, with a high of 17 C expected today and 16 C tomorrow, though the high temperature will drop off to 10 C by Friday in the South Okanagan as well. Overnight a low of 8 C is expected today and 7 C on Wednesday. A low of 3 C on Tuesday night and just 1 C on Thursday night is expected in the Penticton area as well.
Throughout the Okanagan showers are expected to end this morning, though there is a chance of more rain this evening, and then the weather office is calling for skies to be mainly sunny Tuesday and Wednesday before another chance of rain moves in Wednesday evening and Thursday. A mix of sun and cloud is expected Friday.
