Spring has sprung

Madison Erhardt

Environment Canada is predicting that most of Canada should see a warmer than normal spring.

The Maritimes, Ontario and Quebec will be the first regions to leave wintery weather in the past, but the rest of the country will not be far behind.

Mild temperatures are in the forecast for residents in the Okanagan today – the first official day of spring.

Kelowna got off to a bit of a chilly start this morning, but Environment Canada is predicting a high of 9 C and sunny skies this afternoon. 

Tuesday will see a high of 8 C, with showers and possible flurries in the morning. 

Wednesday and Thursday will be cloudy with temperatures sitting around 9 C. 

Friday and Saturday will feel even more spring-like, as both days call for showers with highs of 11 C and 12 C. 

Sunday will be the warmest day of the week at 13 C and cloudy. 

As far as the roads are concerned, DriveBC reports that Highway 99 will be closed in both directions due to construction 16 kilometres north of Lillooet from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., and again from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday.

The closure goes from March 20 to March 31
