If you’re not bundled up and heading outside to enjoy the sun, it’s time to get moving.
Environment Canada is calling for a sunny, albeit chilly day. The Central Okanagan is expected to see few clouds today, with temperatures ranging from -11 C to -5 C. By Tuesday, however, the clouds should roll in, bringing with them periods of snow which won’t go away until Thursday.
If that is offering the impetus needed to get going, here are some potential Family Day activities.
