After the third driest July on record, with only 0.8 per cent of Kelowna’s normal precipitation falling throughout the month, moisture is finally in the forecast.
Mostly sunny skies will stick around throughout Thursday, with the mercury returning to the 30s before falling into the mid-teens overnight.
Friday’s weather arrives with a mix of sun and cloud and a southwesterly breeze. Afternoon temperatures will be a touch cooler than Thursday, around 28 C.
Clouds and a chance of showers arrive both Saturday and Sunday, along with cooler air that will drop daytime highs into the low-to-mid-20s for the first time since mid-June.
Sunshine will return next week, though, will temperatures reaching the upper 20s and eventually the low 30s.
Smoke is expected to clear substantially through the period, with a westerly influence keeping the worst of the poor air quality out of the area.
