Morning Start: Rain, rain, go away

Your morning start for Saturday, Sept. 14

The turnaround from summer to fall may happen in the Okanagan quicker than expected. Environment Canada forecasts rain with breaks of sun throughout Saturday with mostly more rain through the rest of next week.

Highs ranging around 20 C can be expected, but the Okanagan may have seen the last of the blistering sunny days for now.

Fun fact of the day:

The full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox is called the Harvest Moon. It was believed to be vital for an abundant harvest by many cultures.

Did you catch the Harvest Moon Friday night?
