New Year’s Eve will have periods of snow all day with a high of minus one. Even though all polar bear dips are cancelled across the Okanagan, you could still find your own spot along one of the lakes to take a refreshing winter plunge.

According to the weather, you will be enjoying the first day of 2021 with some snow and minus one degrees.

Despite this being the most difficult Christmas in history, Mother Nature did deliver a white Christmas to all of us in the Okanagan.
