First off, the weather. Today is expected to get up to a high of 13 C, with a mixture of sun and cloud. Tomorrow, Remembrance Day, the forecast is similar, with the temperature slightly lower with a high of 12 C. Rain is is not forecast for either day.
The forecast is good news for those who rely on the bus to get around in the Central Okanagan as today is the first day of a transit strike here. Last minute negotiations failed to avert the strike, which started early Thursday morning. There will be no buses or HandyDart service, today, other than essential service levels of HandyDart for folks such as dialysis patients.
The transit strike may affect attendance at a number of Remembrance Day ceremonies planned for the area tomorrow. Ceremonies are planned for downtown Kelowna, Rutland, West Kelowna, Peachland and Lake Country to remember those who have served in the armed forces and those who died in the service of Canada in conflicts around the world dating back to the First World War.
