OKANAGAN - An unsettled start to the week will give way to more pleasant, spring-like conditions in the Okanagan for the next few days.

Environment Canada meteorologist Bobby Sekhon says scattered showers today, March 25, in the region will become more predominant tonight with freezing levels dropping, which will likely mean snow on mountain passes. The summit on the Coquihalla Highway could see five centimetres, the Okanagan Connector about two cm and Allison Pass on Highway 3 up to four cm of snow tonight before the system passes through the region tomorrow.

Sekhon says the rest of the week should be dry and warm. There is a possibility of precipitation on Friday, but the coming weekend looks to be sunny and warm.

Today in the Okanagan the forecast calls for a cloudy day with a 60 per cent chance of showers this morning and a south wind at 20 km/h this afternoon gusting to 40, with a high of 13 Celsius. Showers return tonight with a low of around 5 C.

The showers are expected to end tomorrow morning, followed by a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 10 C. There’s a 30 per cent chance of showers overnight tomorrow with a low of 0 C.

The forecast calls for sunshine from Wednesday through Friday with highs of around 10 C Wednesday, and approximately 12 C on Thursday and Friday.

The sunny weather is expected to continue into the weekend with highs of 15 C on Saturday and 14 C on Sunday.

Normal temperatures at this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of about 11 C and lows of around 0 C.
