Relief from deep freeze

Wintery conditions are expected to stick around for two more days.

Twenty-six cold weather records were broken across the province on Monday, including in Penticton, Vernon and Kelowna.

“We had an early season arctic front that moved down from the north and gave everyone an early douse of winter,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa West.

In the Okanangan, Vernon got down to -16.4 C, breaking the previous record for that date, set in 1973 at -12.8 C. Penticton was at -9.7 C, breaking the previous -8.9 in 2003.

Kelowna dipped to  -11.5 C Monday morning, with the previous record at -9.4 C set in 2003.

The next two days will also have below-average temperatures.

“Past that, we are expecting a very gradual warming trend back up towards seasonal or just below seasonal."

Temperature highs are expected to get up to 3 C or even 5 C by the week's end.
