Looking even further ahead, the forecast projects Kelowna will warm up to 2 C on Monday.
Today’s forecast is -13 C, feeling like -28 C and – 22 C in the afternoon with the wind chill. Periods of snow are also projected to fall this morning and tonight, amounting to two to four cm.
The projected warm temperatures come after a week-long stint of large amounts of snow and freezing temperatures. On Monday, a deep freeze hit the Okanagan as temperatures hovered around -19 C throughout the day, but with the wind chill, it felt more like -24 C in the morning and – 29 C in the afternoon. A blowing snow advisory was also in effect for the Okanagan Valley.
A day earlier temperatures dropped to -19 C from around 1 C in less than 24 hours on Jan. 12.
Wind gusts of 70 km/h also didn’t help, making the temperature feel like -28 C earlier this week.
