    The Interior Plateau: Because the Coast Mountains act as a barrier to the moist westerly air flow, the Interior Plateau (immediately to the east of this mountain chain) has a much drier and more continental climate. Summers tend to be warm and dry; winters cooler, but less moist. The southern interior, including the Okanagan, Similkameen, and Thompson River valleys, experiences BC's hottest summers, with temperatures often in the 30°C range/86-102°F, and occasionally rising above 40°C/104°F. Kamloops, for example, has an average maximum of -1°C/30°F in January and 28°C/82°F in July, and just 279mm/11in of annual precipitation. Areas further north on the Interior Plateau (Williams Lake and Prince George areas) tend to have a moist, cooler regime than that of the southern portions of the plateau.

    <font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Enjoying Canada's driest climate, Osoyoos bills itself as Desert Wine Country. Osoyoos is the only desert in Canada, with the lowest rainfall, the highest temperatures, and the warmest lakes. Osoyoos is located in the middle of the Southern Okanagan wine country, whose fine wines match any wines from anywhere, from France to California.>>>></font>
