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

While the calendar flipped over into July, the unsettled and wet weather continued with Kamloops getting half as much rain in the first week of July as it did in all of June.

In the Okanagan, where June was a much wetter month than in Kamloops, some areas still got one-third as much rain in one week as in all of June.

And unsettled weather looks to be continuing into next week.

Kamloops recorded 16.4 millimetres of rain from July 1 to July 7, more than half the 28.3 mm that fell in all of June.

Kelowna has been drier, with only 11 mm in July versus 68.3 mm in June.

Vernon, typically the wettest of the larger cities in the Okanagan, had 38.4 mm in the first week versus 91.6 mm for all of June. Penticton has 22.3 mm so far in July versus 54.4 mm for June.
