Will the sun come out tomorrow? A little. But Sunday is set to be the sunny stunner around the Okanagan. Get ready to bask in Vitamin D.
On the roads:. There are no snowfall warnings in effect for mountain highways.
The Okanagan is home to a number of interesting creatures, a couple of which are totally fictional. Top of mind is the Ogopogo, but head over to the Shuwswap and there’s a creature called Shuswaggi worth talking about.
The Shuswaggi has been described in various ways, ranging from a large, furry mammal resembling a bear to a lengthy, grey-black aquatic creature similar to a giant eel. Stories of Shuswaggi do share a common theme, however, revolving around boaters encountering an unknown creature.
