OKANAGAN - The high temperatures are sticking around for the weekend in the Okanagan with barely a cloud expected in the skies.

Environment Canada says today, July 6, will be sunny with a high of around 38 Celsius in the Okanagan. Throughout the day and into the evening a 20 km/h breeze is expected, which may make it feel a little cooler. Tonight the temperature is expected to only fall to 18 C.

Tomorrow isn’t going to be much cooler, with a high of 34 C forecast and sunny skies. The 20 km/h breeze will return in the afternoon. At night the low will be around 17 C.

Sunday will be a couple degrees cooler again, around 32 C for a high. Overnight some clouds will show up, with a low of 16 C.

Next week forecast to be more of the same — full of sunshine with highs in the high 20s and low 30s.

Environment Canada has issued an alert for most of Southern Interior, warning about the heat wave and dry weather as temperatures will reach the mid and high 30s. Fires and illness related to heat are both concerns.
