OKANAGAN - Local smoke is going to start the week off, however the hot and sunny weather is expected to continue in the Okanagan.
The national weather office has a nearly identical forecast for Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon this week — and it's all heat with no rain on the horizon.
Today, July 31, according to Environment Canada we can expect sun and smoke with a high of 32 Celsius. The UV index is expected to be very high reaching a level 8. Wind is expected to come from the north this evening reaching 20 km/h with a low of 17 C.
The sun and smoke is expected to continue with morning winds on Tuesday. Highs are expected to reach 35 C with lows of 16 C.
Then the rest of the week should be much as it was all of July — highs in the mid 30s and overnight lows of 16 to 18 C. Wednesday is expected to reach 35 C and Thursday and Friday should reach 36 C. Plan for a hot and sunny weekend as more sun continues and highs are expected to reach the mid-30s.
