There’s not much chance of more snow falling in the Okanagan between now and Christmas, as the forecast for the next several days calls for a mix of sun and cloud with temperatures around the freezing mark.

Some parts of the valley may also experience melting conditions today, Dec. 23, and tomorrow as well, as the daytime highs nudge above 0 Celsius in all three cities today.

Today in the Okanagan, Environment Canada says this morning’s rain and snow mix should give way to cloudy skies and a 40 per cent chance of rain or snow in Kelowna, later becoming a mix of sun and cloud.

Today’s high should reach 2 Celsius in Vernon and Kelowna, and 3 C in Penticton, with a low down to -4 C tonight in Vernon and Kelowna, and -1 C in Penticton. Winds tonight are expected to be 15 km/h with a windchill of -4 C.

The forecast calls for a mix of sun and cloud tomorrow, Christmas Eve, with a high of -1 C in Vernon and Kelowna, and a high of 2 C in Penticton. Overnight the mercury is expected to drop to -4 C in all three cities under cloudy skies.

Wednesday’s Christmas Day forecast calls for cloudy skies and a high of 1 C in the Okanagan with more clouds and low of -4 C overnight.

Thursday should see the sun return with a high of -1 C and an overnight low of -4 C under clear skies.

More sun is forecast for Friday with a high of -2 C and a low of -3 C under cloudy overnight skies.

The weekend looks like it will be cloudy and damp, with a 30 per cent chance of flurries both Saturday and Sunday. Highs are expected to reach 1 C Saturday and 2 C on Sunday.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of -2 C and lows of -8 C.
