Morning Start: Who is Greta Thunberg?

Your morning start for Friday, Sept. 20

The sunny days of summer may be over.

As the Okanagan continues towards the start of fall on Sept. 23, Environment Canada forecasts rain through the weekend and periods of rain and sun through to next week.

Fun Fact of the day:

Today, over 150 countries are taking part in Fridays for Future. The international movement of schools and students striking for climate change are participating in demonstrations across the globe in demand for action against climate change. This all began with Greta Thunberg, who began striking every Friday to protest the lack of effective climate legislation on a governmental level.

Weather forecast according to Environment Canada:

In Kelowna:

Mix of sun, clouds and rain with a high of 20 C. Forty per cent chance of rain throughout the day but expected to clear in the evening leading into a bright and clear Saturday.
