OKANAGAN - The unseasonably cool and wet September will continue into the weekend in the Okanagan.

Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist says temperatures this month have been below the seasonal average, but he hints by next week at this time things might be on the upswing as a high pressure ridge builds.

Showers are expected over the next three days in the valley, with periods of rain forecast for Kelowna and Vernon tomorrow. Lundquist says the rain will be heavier in the North Okanagan with amounts as high as 20 mm in some locations.

The forecast for today, Sept. 20, calls for a mix of sun and cloud with a 40 per cent chance of showers and a high of 17 Celsius. Expect rain tonight with a low of 9 C.

Tomorrow will only see the mercury climb to 11 C in Kelowna and Vernon, with periods of rain. Penticton has a 40 per cent chance of showers tomorrow with a high temperature of 17 C.

Saturday the possibility of rain remains, with a 60 per cent chance of showers and a high of 15C.

On Sunday, expect to see some sun breaking through the clouds and a high of 17 C, with more sun and a high of 18 on Monday, just in time to return to work.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of 18 C and lows of 6 C.
