All aboard

Carefully guided by her dad, Ryan, four-year-old MacKenzie Bumstead of Beaumont, Alta., ventures into Okanagan Lake aboard a unicorn-styled floatie Thursday morning at Kelowna’s City Park.

It may become known as the Three Day Summer.

The promising weather start to August is about to end abruptly in the Okanagan, with temperatures dropping almost 20 degrees.

After three sunny days with temperatures in the mid-30s C, a drastic change looms with a high of only 16 C, and plenty of rain, predicted for Sunday.

Although the sun will return, the 14-day forecast from the Weather Network predicts temperatures in Kelowna won’t return above 30 C, hovering instead in the low- and mid-20s.

Through the first week of August in Kelowna, the average daytime temperature has been 32.3 C, about five degrees warmer than normal.

The average high temperature in July was 27.1 C, but there was only one day when the thermometer made it into the mid-30s.
