Okanagan weather: risk of frost, more mountain snow to start October

After a weekend that brought cooler temperatures to the Okanagan and snow to high elevation mountain highways, a reprieve is on the way to start October.

Light showers and mountain flurries stuck around to start the final day of September as temperatures slipped to 3 degrees above freezing in Kelowna.

The valley bottom will warm into low double digits during the day as clouds linger before clearing out into the evening.

Clear conditions under an arctic ridge of high pressure brings in a risk of frost overnight as temperatures dive below freezing by a degree or 2, so be sure to cover up or bring in any frost sensitive plants.

Temperatures fall below freezing with frost possible in the Okanagan Tuesday morning.

Sunshine will start the day on Tuesday before clouds associated with the next frontal boundary push in during the evening after the mercury makes it back into the mid-teens.

Clouds stick around on Wednesday with a chance of showers into the evening hours that could change over to snow at elevations of 1300 metres or higher

There is a chance of rain late Wednesday that will likely transition to snow on high elevation highways into Thursday morning.

After a damp start to the day on Thursday with some lingering showers, sunny breaks begin to work their way back in during the afternoon as temperatures return to the mid-teens.

A mix of sun and cloud and mid-teen daytime highs will stick around Friday, into the weekend and beyond.
