Long-weekend campers who had to ride out the first two days of their trip beneath a blue tarp will be happy to see that the forecast is improving. Across the Okanagan-Shuswap region rain is giving way to warmer temperatures and a mix of sun and cloud.
Great to see some rain in #Okanagan but lets not forget over the long weekend; if you have a camp fire put it out with water and make sure it's cold. Never leave your fire unattended, and report signs of wildfire: 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cell https://t.co/yB6UtgLkSh
