Weather in the Okanagan

The weather in the Okanagan is one reason why so many of our visitors become residents. Warm summers characterized by low humidity along with relatively mild winters mean the Okanagan's weather is envied by much of Canada!

The Okanagan is dry. This is due to the Coastal Mountain Range, which creates a rain shadow that blocks or diverts the majority of the rainy weather systems from reaching the Okanagan. This is why Vancouver and the Lower Mainland get about 48″ of precipitation a year while here in the Kelowna area we get about 16″ a year.

Through the spring, summer and fall, the weather in the Okanagan is the perfect climate to enjoy almost all outdoor activities. During the winter, due to the low humidity and relatively mild temperatures, snow in higher elevations, including Predator Rige, is light and fluffy and known as the Okanagan's famous champagne powder.
