After one of hottest and driest summers on record, the sun is going into hiding for most of the coming week with lots of rain in the forecast.

While today, Sept. 13, and Thursday show sunshine, the sun may not be seen much for the rest of the week and temperatures will drop significantly, according to the Environment Canada forecast.

In the Okanagan, a high of 23 Celsius is expected today but rain is predicted to start late tomorrow morning with five to 10 millimetres expected to fall. Winds may gust up to 40 km/hr and the temperature is only expected to get to 16 C.

There’s a 60% chance of rain forecast for Wednesday with a high of only 13 C. There could be snow on the Okanagan Connector Wednesday morning.
