Weather outlook: Today will give us a high of 14C in Kelowna with mostly sunny skies. A south wind will keep it feeling chilly. The Connector Hwy 97C was reporting strong crosswinds at 3:30 this morning. Good chance they’re still there challenging drivers to hang on. The overnight fog might take a while to lift, from Brenda Mines to Pennask Summit.
