For many people, the towns of the Okanagan Valley offer the best weather in Canada. Winters are cold, but are shorter and less severe than most Canadian cities. Summers are hot and sunny.
Penticton and the Okanagan Valley are surrounded by the Rocky Mountains.
The mountains block Arctic winds from reaching Penticton. They also prevent mild maritime air reaching Penticton in summer, leading to warmer weather than Vancouver.
Penticton’s high summer temperatures are more pleasant than Ontario’s because humidity levels are lower.
Penticton’s afternoon humidity in summer is about 35 percent. Toronto’s is about 55 percent.
