Showers for the weekend in the Okanagan; sunshine returns Monday

OKANAGAN – The cool, wet weekend is a welcome break from the hot, dry weather we’ve been experiencing so far this summer in the Okanagan.

Environment Canada is calling for showers off and on today, July 25, and Sunday up and down the valley, with high temperatures in the low 20s Celsius.

Most of the rain will fall in the North Okanagan, with the forecast calling for between 10 and 20 millimetres in Vernon today.

There is a risk of a thunderstorm in both the North and South Okanagan today.

It’s back to the sunshine and slightly above normal summertime temperatures for the rest of the week, with highs closing in on the 30 C mark on Tuesday and Wednesday, and in the low 30s C on Thursday and Friday.

Normal high temperatures for this time of the year in the Okanagan are around 27 C.
