After some brief relief from wildfire smoke on Wednesday, a southerly wind will kick in on Thursday, bringing in a fresh wave of smoke from Washington state.

Sunshine will stick around all day, with temperatures making it into the high 20s or low 30s, depending on smoke thickness in any given area.

Dry weather will linger in the Okanagan to finish the workweek, with smoke reducing air quality and visibility on Friday as the mercury attempts to make it into the upper 20s or low 30s.
