OKANAGAN - With temperatures already in the mid-teens today, there is a good chance high temperature records could fall throughout the Okanagan this week.
Environment Canada is calling for highs of 22 Celsius to 24 C throughout the valley today, April 7, and with records ranging from 22.6 C in Penticton to 23.4 C in Kelowna it is possible we could see new records today. Vernon’s current record is 23.3 C.
The likelihood of a record day is even higher tomorrow, when records of 23 C in Penticton, 24.2 C in Kelowna and 23.9 C in Vernon could fall to temperatures of 26 C or warmer.
The normal seasonal high temperature at this time of year is 14 C in the Okanagan.
Sunshine is also in the forecast for the rest of the day today while tomorrow is expected to be mainly sunny with winds gusting to 40 kilometres per hour in the North and Central Okanagan.
