We've missed you, Mr. Sun

Recent warmer weather has coaxed blossoming of local trees.

THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - It finally looks like the warm, sunny weather is going to stick around for more than a day or two in the Thompson-Okanagan valley.

At least for this week.

Environment Canada expects Kamloops to have sunny weather all week, with highs in the low-to-mid 20 degrees Celcius.

There is a slight chance of showers in Penticton and Kelowna Monday, Friday and Saturday, but otherwise the sky will be sunny with highs in the low to mid 20's.

The temperatures have been cooler than average for this time of year, said Doug Lundquist, meteorologist for Environment Canada. 

Shifting from cold to warm weather can seem kind of dramatic, especially in the spring time, said Lundquist.

“We go from winter to summer pretty quickly,” he said. Right now we're in the "wet part of summer," before the dry heat kicks in, he said. 

Next week will cool off, however, with temperatures dipping back down the the teens at the beginning of next week, he said.
