Spring weather in winter

In the direct sun on Friday afternoon in downtown Kelowna, the mercury soared to 12 C — a far cry from the average January daytime high of -1 C and exceeding the forecast high of 9 C for the day. That prompted Kelsie Anderson, left, and her mom, Bonnie, to lounge in the deck chairs along the shore of Okanagan Lake in front of the Kelowna Visitor Centre. The pair are from Cranbrook and were in town to shop for a wedding dress for Kelsie. The weather won’t be as fine this weekend. Saturday, it will be mostly cloudy with a high of 4 C and a low overnight of 2 C. Sunday, we might get some rain while the temperature gets up to 6 C.
