A little bit of everything in the Okanagan weather forecast this week
November 28, 2016 - 11:00 AM
OKANAGAN - The Okanagan Valley woke up to a scenic November day. The dusting of snow on the mountaintops, highlighted by the patches of sunny sky, suggest an idyllic week ahead.
That combination of precipitation, sun and cloud is a good description of what we can expect for the next several days, according to Environment Canada.
The blue sky and sunshine peeking through the clouds today, Nov. 28, are thanks to blustery winds. All areas of the valley can expect gusts this morning, and in the South Okanagan, those winds are expected to reach 50 kilometres per hour.
Despite a windy start, today will be the warmest day of the week, with highs reaching 6 Celsius to 7 C. We can expect some rain this afternoon. The daytime temperatures will get progressively colder as the week goes on, peaking between 1 C and 4 C throughout the region.
Tomorrow should offer up full sunshine during the day with rain or snow flurries and temperatures dropping to -1 C overnight.
Those chilly, wet conditions will stick around Wednesday, with a 70 per cent chance of flurries. Be prepared for the first snowy road conditions in the valley bottoms.
In keeping with the unpredictable weather, however, sunshine is expected return on Thursday, so enjoy it while you can, because by Thursday evening the clouds will settle in comfortably for a few days.
