OKANAGAN - While it could be drab and windy today, the weather forecast for the weekend is looking better.

Today, June 15, is expected to be mainly cloudy with a 60 per cent chance of showers throughout most of the Okanagan, according to Environment Canada, with a high of 23 Celsius and windy.

A special weather statement from Environment Canada is still in place, warning winds will be coming through the Okanagan today, June 15, with gusts up to 60 km/h. Due to the high water in Okanagan, Skaha and Osoyoos lakes there are concerns waves could cause shore erosion or other problems.

Tomorrow, a mix of sun and clouds is predicted with a 30 per cent chance of showers. The wind will still be around, gusting up to 40 km/h, but it will decrease through the day. A high of 23 C is forecast. Overnight expect lows around 9 C and a 30 per cent chance of showers.

After a couple of drab days, Saturday is looking pretty nice, with a sunny day predicted and highs around 23 C. Overnight cloudy periods will roll through, with a low of 11 C expected.

Sunday it’s going to get hot, with a high of around 29 C and a mix of sun and cloud. Overnight it’ll drop back to 11 C.
