KELOWNA - Okanagan residents can look forward to continuing fall-like weather conditions this week, following a stellar weekend in the valley.

Environment Canada says the only negative temperatures in the forecast for the next few days will occur tonight, Nov. 19, and tomorrow night with the rest of the work week expected to be a mix of cloud, showers and a bit of sun, and temperatures remaining at or above 0 Celsius overnight.

Midweek precipitation could involve some snow however, as temperatures hover around the 0 C mark.

Today will see fog and low cloud clearing this morning with a high of 4 C, followed by partly cloudy skies and a low of -4 C tonight. Winds in the 15 km/h range will result in a wind chill near -6 C.

Tomorrow expect a mix of sun and cloud late in the morning after the low cloud burns off, with a high of 3 C and a low of -2 C.

The Okanagan could see a 40 per cent chance of showers Wednesday with a high of 5 C.

Thursday the forecast calls for showers and a high of 5 C, with those showers possibly mixed with flurries overnight thanks to a low dropping to around 0 C.

Friday will see cloudy skies and a high of 3 C with a 60 per cent chance of showers.

This week’s temperatures aren’t too far off the normal high and low for this time of year in the Okanagan, which is 2 C and -3 C.
