It’s shaping up to be a pretty nice weekend in the Okanagan as the sun returns along with rising temperatures.

The forecast is calling for high temperatures in the mid-20s Celsius this weekend in the Okanagan but not so much in Ontario.

A May polar vortex is could bring snow and record-low temperatures to the Toronto area on Friday and Saturday, according to the Weather Network. Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury could break cold temperature records on Friday with a forecast of 1.1 C for both cities, as temperatures in southern Ontario are not expected to get much higher than 4 or 5 C for daytime highs.

Dawson City, Yukon, has a more appealing seven-day forecast than Toronto.

Environment Canada says in the Okanagan we can expect clearing skies this morning with winds becoming north at 20 km/h this afternoon. Today’s high should reach 18 C, with a low of 5 C.

More sunshine is in store for the valley on Friday and Saturday, with highs of 24 C and 22 C. It’s expected to remain clear both nights, with lows of 8 C .

Sunday promises to be a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 22 C and a low of 8 C overnight, accompanied by cloudy periods.

A mix of sun and cloud is expected for Monday with a high of 19 C and a low of 8 C.

Tuesday is expected to be similar, with a mix of sun and cloud, a high of 22 C and a low of 8 C.

More clouds are in the forecast for Wednesday, with a high of 21 C.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of 19 C and lows of 5 C.
