If you enjoyed the past weekend’s hot and sunny weather, get ready to enjoy more of the same. There’s a week of more summer weather coming up, even though the Labour Day weekend is over and school is back in session.

The valley is going to see more sunshine and temperatures several degrees above seasonal norms as we move into the middle of September.

The Weather Network reports a different weather situation on the prairies, where many residents faced a morning frost today.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Okanagan, warning of maximum daily temperatures of five to 10 degrees above seasonal tomorrow and Thursday.

It should be sunny today, Sept. 8, with a high of 26 Celsius and clear skies overnight with a low of 9 C.

Wednesday should be sunny with north winds at 20 km/h in the afternoon. It should reach 28 C on Wednesday with an overnight low of 11 C.

Thursday and Friday should see more sun and highs of 30 C and 29 C, respectively, along with lows of 12 C and 13 C, respectively.

Saturday and Sunday look promising at this point, with sunshine and a high of 29 C on Saturday, and a mix of sun and clouds and a high of 27 C on Sunday.

Monday should see a sun and cloud mix and a high of 25 C.

Normal temperatures this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of 21 C and lows of 8 C.
