Another warm week for the Okanagan

People are enjoying the waterfront walkway on Okanagan Lake in Penticton. The waterfront will be a popular place to be with temperatures hitting well above seasonal normals across the Okanagan.

OKANAGAN - After a week filled with record and near-record temperatures, things are set to cool down in the Okanagan this week, but only slightly.

With temperatures reaching the mid-30s, Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton hit records this past week and while Environment Canada is not calling for temperatures quite that hot this week, the mercury should still be above seasonal normals of 23 Celsius.

Temperatures are expected to reach between 27 C and 29 C throughout the Okanagan today, with the mercury forecast to rise as high as 30 C on Tuesday, June 16. Both days are set to bring a mix of sun and cloud.

On Wednesday, temperatures are forecast to reach 27 C throughout the valley, along with a 30 per cent chance of showers. The rest of the week is set to be full of sunshine with temperatures dropping to seasonal normals by Friday.

Most of the region hit temperatures above 30 C for most of last week and according to the weather office temperatures have stayed below 20 C on only two days so far this month.
