Okanagan weather: rain and snow to start Family Day long weekend

The second week of February brought in milder air, with cool morning lows in mid-minus single digits.

The trend continued Thursday, as temperatures dipped to -6 C in the morning with clouds lingering to start the day, with pockets of mixed precipitation passing through before warming above freezing.

A risk of possible flurries continues into Thursday night as conditions cool to around -3, before clouds clear out during the day on Friday and sunshine returns in the afternoon to bring a beautiful end to your Valentine’s Day.

The Family Day long weekend kicks off on a cloudy note on Saturday, as a frontal boundary pushes through and brings in mixed precipitation during the afternoon and evening.

Daytime highs all weekend will remain in the 5 degree range, with morning lows back a few degrees below freezing.

Mostly cloudy skies will linger on Sunday, with a slight chance of flurries and the increasing potential for a few sunny breaks heading into Family Day on Monday.

The short work week following the long weekend will see a return to a bit more sunshine by mid-week, as daytime highs stay steady in mid-single digits.
