OKANAGAN - After some rain and cool temperatures on the weekend — and a very noticable lack of wildfire smoke — warmer, smoky conditions return to the Okanagan this week.

Environment Canada is calling for a mix of sun and cloud today, Aug. 14, with local smoke and a high of about 22 Celsius. A smoky skies bulletin was reissued from much of the B.C. Interior including the Okanagan today. Expect a few clouds overnight with a low of around 10 C.

The forecast calls for a mainly sunny day tomorrow with local smoke and a high of around 24 C. The sky will clear overnight with a low of about 10 C.

For Wednesday, Thursday and Friday expect sunshine and highs around 26 C.

The sunshine and seasonally normal temperatures will continue into the weekend.

Normal temperatures this time of year are highs of 27 C and lows of 11 C.
