Fog will lift as temperatures plummet

The fog will soon be lifting, but the temperature will be falling.

The dismal grey fog that has been engulfing Kelowna for the last week is expected to start dissipating by Friday.

Greg Pearce with Environment Canada says a high pressure system out of the north is predicted to start making it’s way across the Okanagan late Thursday and early Friday, bringing winds that will push away the fog.

“This sort of extended foggy period happens sometimes when a high pressure system comes up the Oregon/California coast. There has been very little wind across the valley to push the moisture around, which has created the fog,” says Pearce.

He says the system which will get rid of the fog will also bring some cold temperatures.

“We might see some light flurries, not much accumulation, but we can also expect to see low overnight temperatures, especially over the weekend. The overnight lows could be between -13 and -15, with highs around -10.”

Pearce says the wind chill could drop the low temperatures to the -20s.
