More rain, more wind for Okanagan-Shuswap

Environment Canada calling for rain and wind Sunday, but a nice looking week lies ahead

Baby the rain must fall, sang crooner Glenn Yarbrough, in a song of the same title written by Elmer Bernstein and Ernie Sheldon, in 1965.

And fall it will Sunday, June 28, throughout the Okanagan-Shuswap with wind thrown in as a bonus.

The good news is, there is a mix of sun and cloud in the forecast for the week with Canada Day, Wednesday, July 1, expected to be sunny with highs near 25 degrees.
