Morning Start: Did you know humans are the only animals that enjoy spicy foods?

Your morning start for Monday, March 30

Good morning, it’s supposed to rain today, but the rest of the week should be nice.

Weather forecast according to Environment Canada:

The weather has become tolerable as we inch closer to spring.

In Kelowna:

In Vernon:

In Penticton:

In Salmon Arm:
