Air Quality Warning
The heat warning continues for the North Okanagan, as does the special air quality statement due to the smoke. Air Quality Health Index in Vernon was already 5 on a scale of 1-10 early Wednesday morning, which is at the high end of moderate.
Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa Erven says we could hit a temperature of 38 by Thursday, but there is some relief coming.
We're expected to get a cold front moving over the region, bringing temperatures down to the mid-twenties for the weekend. But she says it could mean we'll also see some thunderstorms.
