It promises to be a great week to enjoy some early spring outdoor weather in the Okanagan, no matter what you might not be doing, given the latest COVID-19 restrictions.

Environment Canada’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies right through next weekend for the valley, with temperatures climbing into the low teens by Saturday.

It should be a fine spring break week for a nice outdoor stroll, while practising social distancing of course.

Environment Canada says to expect sunny skies with north winds at 20 km/h this afternoon in the valley, with a high of 7 Celsius.

Windchills could be noticeable at -17 C this morning and -12 C overnight.

Tuesday could see some cloud in the morning, with north winds at 20 km/h in the afternoon.

Wednesday through Friday, expect lots of sunshine with temperatures inching towards 10 C by Friday.

There’s a nice weekend on the horizon with sunny skies expected Saturday and Sunday with highs of 12 C.

Overnight lows will begin climbing from -4 C and -6 C Tuesday and Wednesday to -1 C by Saturday night.

Normally Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton experience a high and low of 9 C and -1 C this time of year.
