June turning cooler and possibly wetter in Kamloops, Okanagan

June is normally the wettest month of the year in Kamloops and the Okanagan.

Given the sometimes record-breaking heat during much of the first half of the month, that’s not likely to be the case this year but cooler weather is coming, along with a greater chance of showers.

There’s a 60% chance of showers in the Okanagan today, June 14, with a high temperature forecast at only 20 Celsius in Kelowna and Vernon, 23 C in Penticton, according to Environment Canada’s online forecast.

That should make today the coldest this month, beating the 24.3 C high on June 5 in Kelowna. There were four days in the first two weeks of June that were 30 C or higher, including a record breaking 35.1 C on June 8.
