Vernon came close to breaking an 95 year old weather record due to all the rain over the weekend.
Armel Castellan from Environment Canada says the storm brought bursts of intense rain to areas like Vernon.
“On the 9th, which is Saturday. 8.1 millimetres fell, and on Sunday, 18 millimetres fell. The 18 is actually good for the second most amount of rain on a June 10th. In 1923, 24.4 millimetres fell,” Castellan tells Beach Radio News.
Higher elevations were blanketed with fresh snow, including Silver Star, which had over 30 centimetres.
The weather will remain unsettled for the next few days — but after that, it’s good news for sun lovers.
Castellan says a ridge of high pressure will start to build by Friday.
“And then it’s going to keep building through the weekend, so it should be a very clear, very warm weekend, getting closer to probably 30 degrees by Sunday.”
Castellan says there is a chance the warm dry weather could continue to until at least June 23rd.
