Snow and more below-normal temperatures on its way to the Okanagan: Environment Canada
The first week of the new year will feature temperatures with highs of -6 C in Kelowna and Penticton
It appears as though 2022 will start the same way 2021 ended.
Environment Canada predicts that temperatures will drop to -6 in Kelowna and Penticton during the Okanagan’s first week.
Salmon Arm is expected to see temperatures slightly lower by the end the week.
Contrary to the arctic-like winter blast that hit Western Canada at the end of December, record-setting temperatures are not expected to be the weather theme in B.C’s Interior during early January.
Environment Canada projects snowfall across the Okanagan from now until January 7.
“Periods of snow,” as they call it, are forecasted in Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon starting on Tuesday (Jan. 4).
A 60 per cent chance of flurries in Salmon Arm is consistent with Environment Canada’s weeklong projections for the area.
2021 saw cities such as Penticton, Kelowna and Kelowna set new records.
Environment Canada recognizes that winter began on December 1, and the season’s first half ends in mid-January. Meteorologists in the Okanagan predicted a “colder than usual” first half of winter before the start of the season.
