There are three more days and nights of showers in the Okanagan forecast before things start looking a little brighter, but the cool start to June is expected to continue.

Unsettled conditions are prevalent in other parts of the country too, as Ontario was hit by widespread, severe thunderstorms last night that brought strong winds and heavy rain to many parts of the province, leaving thousands without power.

In Alberta, The Weather Network reports stormy conditions are expected to return to the province on Friday and Saturday, following a brief hot spell that could see temperatures as high as 28 Celsius in Edmonton on Saturday before the prospect of severe thunderstorms develop Saturday evening.

Today in the Okanagan, Environment Canada says to expect cloudy skies with a 30 per cent chance of showers this morning with more showers and a chance of thunderstorms expected this afternoon.

Saturday looks like it will be damp, with periods of rain and a high of only 13 C.

There is a 60 per cent chance of showers overnight with a low of 10 C expected.
