The Okanagan weather and its climate is conrolled by where it is situated in British Columbia Canada. The many storms the West coast get hit by from the Pacific Ocean are blocked by The Coast Mountain Range.
This causes a rain shadow effect over the Okanagan Valley and the precipitation here is far less than what the coast receives. This makes the region either arid or semi-arid.
There is even a difference in precipitation from the South Okanagan and the North Okanagan with annual amounts of between 250mm (10 in) and 360mm (14 in).
The Okanagan temperatures are described as being mild continental.
Winter in the region experiences cool humid air and cloudy skies while the summer has dry air and bright, blue skies.
The winter months are cold but relatively mild compared to the rest of Canada.
Summer is hot and sunny with the weather in Osoyoos having the highest temperatures in the Okanagan Valley.
Relative humidity hits a high of around 80% in winter but drops to 50% in the summer months.
I have heard this many times from people visting from Ontario and other Eastern provinces of Canada. They cannot believe that with our hot temperatures we get in the summer how it can feel so pleasant outside.
This is just another reason why so many tourists love to visit the Okanagan and why us locals love to live here.
It really is a paradise!
