KELOWNA - Okanagan residents can look forward to a relatively stable weather pattern and above normal temperatures over the next few days.

Environment Canada meteorologist Carmen Hartt says a large high pressure ridge will dominate Okanagan weather over the next few days, with alternating sun and cloud, the possibility of morning fog patches and temperatures trending above 0 Celsius by day and below 0 C by night.

A weak trough moving over the valley on Saturday night may bring a few showers or flurries. Above normal temperatures over the next few days will slowly drop to more seasonal norms early next week.

The forecast calls for a 30 per cent chance of light snow this morning, Jan. 24, before clearing to a mix of sun and cloud around noon, with a high today of 1 Celsius. There is a 40 per cent chance of flurries overnight with a low of -3 C.

Tomorrow will be much the same, with a mix of sun and cloud, a high of 3 C and an overnight low of -2 C.

On Saturday the sun breaks out again, with a high of 3 C and a 60 per cent possibility of flurries overnight.

Expect a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday, a 60 per cent chance of flurries, with a high of 2 C and an overnight low of -5 C.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in the Okanagan are highs of around -1 C and lows of about -8 C.
