OKANAGAN - Pull on your boots, Okanagan residents, the wet winter weather is coming to stay.

December begins with one last peek at the sun for this week, according to Environment Canada. Today, Dec. 1, promises a mix of sun and showers throughout the valley, with high temperatures ranging from 4 Celsius to 6 C, and mostly cloudy skies overnight. But the overnight low of -1 C is a harbinger of weather to come.

Those of you who have been eagerly awaiting the first weekend of ski season have reason to get excited — cold weather and precipitation mean lots of the fluffy stuff in the hills. Down in the urban areas, however, it won’t be such a winter wonderland.

The forecast calls for clouds every day, accompanied by wet snow on Friday, and highs of only 1 C to 2 C.

Temperatures will rise to 5 C on Saturday, just enough to turn that snow to rain throughout the day and into Sunday morning. Slightly colder, but just as wet, Sunday will see a high temperature of only 2 C.

The gray skies and cold temperatures are typical for December in the valley.
