Cold weather could stay for days

Everyone noticed the change once they stepped outside Monday morning. Something was different in the air; it felt much colder than anything we had experienced in January, and it’s here to stay for the next few days.

“It is going to be cold for a while,” says Doug Lundquist, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.

He says a ridge of pressure from the Pacific brought an Arctic front though the Okanagan last week and it should last right through to the weekend.

“There could be some sun, but it’s pretty cloudy and there is a lot of moisture in the lake so I’d say it’s going to be a mix (sun and cloud) this week,” says Lundquist.

“The morning hours might see low cloud and we might see sun in the afternoon hours.”

Right now, Kelowna is averaging lows in the -15 or -16 degree range at the airport, something not uncommon for February. That could change this weekend as snow is expected next week, but could possibly come even sooner.
