Alerts for: Okanagan Valley


4:46 PM PST Thursday 26 January 2023
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Central Okanagan - including Kelowna
  • North Okanagan - including Vernon
  • South Okanagan - including Penticton

A cold spell is in the forecast for most of B.C.

Arctic air will invade B.C. beginning late Friday, with a major shift in temperature from our mild January.

Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees colder than normal for this time of year in the central and southern interior of B.C.

A short period of gusty winds will accompany the cold air's arrival through the interior, and may combine with snow leading to a brief period of blowing snow Saturday.

Temperatures are expected to gradually rise late next week, in early February. However, there remains significant uncertainty on the timing of a return to seasonal temperatures.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
