In the springtime, temperatures are balmy and the nearby orchards and vineyards burst into bloom. While you can expect some rainfall as the temperatures begin to warm, overall precipitation remains low.
The Okanagan is renowned for its summers, drawing thousands of tourists to the region each year. With some 2,000 hours of sunshine annually and temperatures that hug 30°C, the warm, dry weather is why life in the Okanagan is the envy of people around the world.
As the temperatures cool in the fall, the vineyards, orchards, and other foliage shift to bright reds and golds, making for beautiful sightlines in every direction.
Winter in the Okanagan brings a moderate amount of snow to the low-lying valley areas along Okanagan Lake, while nearby ski resorts receive several metres of ‘champagne’ powder.
