While fellow Okanaganers in Kelowna and Summerland were cheering last night, the South Okanagan was left dry.

What was reported by Environment Canada to be a 60 percent chance of rain Friday evening turned out to be long odds for Osoyoos.

No rain. No drops. Not even a spit into the wind.


North of us, Kelowna recorded 2.2 mm of the wet stuff; Summerland fared even better, getting 3.2 mm.

But Penticton south? Nothing.

Chalk it up to 93 days without precipitation — and counting.

The weatherman isn’t as confident we’ll get moisture today, either. There’s a 40% chance of showers, although —if it’s any consolation — the winds should pick up and maybe move along a little of the smoke we’re currently experiencing.

Our best chance for moisture? Mid next week — Wednesday,. Thursday and Friday — when Environment Canada is again predicting a 60 percent chance of showers each day.

Yeah, we’ll see.
