Good morning Kelowna, Wednesday Nov. 2, 2016

Here's a look ahead at what this day has in store for us.

  • Nov. 2, 2016 7:00 p.m.

Weather outlook: Expect snow if you plan to drive mountain passes today, particularly toward the east. The snow level starts out the day at 1500 m, rising to 2000 m in the Okanagan. The Pennask Peak at the summit of the Coquihalla connector is just over 1,700 m, about the same elevation as Big White village. In the valley, the weather office says mainly cloudy today with 60 per cent chance of showers. High to 12C.

It’s a ‘no burn day’ in the Okanagan Valley. You shouldn’t see or smell any fires burning today.

UBCO blue collarNew research: UBCO has been looking at the health of blue-collar working men. After meeting with groups of men, a team of researchers came up with some ways to support their healthy eating and physical activity during their working days.

City Confidential: Al Waters keeps tabs on what’s happening at Kelowna city hall. His neck is getting a crink in it because they keep making him look up, waaaay up to see the future for Kelowna’s downtown.

The DebatersSomething to do tonight: The Debaters, CBC Radio One’s hit comedy show, tapes in Kelowna tonight. The antics will be at the Kelowna Community Theatre, starting at 7:30 p.m. Listen to the seasoned comedians go toe-to-toe, debate-style, in a battle of linguistic logic. Go to to do exactly that.
