OKANAGAN - The first week of July is expected to bring the Okanagan a mixed bag of weather conditions — none of which are remotely summer-like. 

“The best day looks like tomorrow (July 3)," said Environment Canada meteorologist Bobby Sekhon. 

"As we get into Thursday, another trough moves through, with showers and unsettled conditions expected into Sunday."

Sekhon says thundershowers can also be expected with the unsettled conditions later this week.

Today, expect mainly cloudy conditions in Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton, with a 40 per cent chance of showers and threat of a thunderstorm this afternoon.
