Warm weather, chance of frost in the Okanagan this weekend

We can expect perfect fall weather this weekend in the Okanagan, with temperatures just above seasonal normals and mainly sunny skies for most of the weekend.

OKANAGAN - Day time temperatures will remain above seasonal normals this weekend but overnight lows mean there is a chance of frost in parts of the Okanagan.

Environment Canada is calling for highs of 17 Celsius today, Oct 16, and 16 C Saturday and Sunday in the Vernon and Penticton areas while Kelowna will see a high of 16 C all weekend. Further south near Osoyoos the mercury will rise to about 21 C today and tomorrow. The seasonal normal high temperatures for this time of year is 12 C throughout the entire Okanagan.

In Vernon and Penticton temperatures are expected to drop to 5 C tonight and just 8 C Saturday night. Kelowna will see similar lows, though with 4 C forecast as a low tonight the weather office is also calling for a risk of frost in the Central Okanagan. The seasonal normal low is 3 C throughout the region.

Overhead the skies will be mainly sunny today and tomorrow and then a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday. There is a chance of rain Saturday night and Sunday during the day.
