Is Kelowna a desert?

Situated in the southern Okanagan Valley, Kelowna is known for its arid environment. In fact, with an annual precipitation of 300mm or less each year it’s classified as semi-arid shrubland – significantly drier than other parts of British Columbia and Canada. Further south lies Osoyoos; this desert town exists on one of the continent’s lowest levels of moisture combined with temperatures that make it a parched oasis unlike any other part if North America!

Kelowna and its environs provide the ideal conditions for producing great wines, with semi-arid to arid climates offering a perfect mix of sun and dryness. Plus, tourists love this area thanks to hot summers that draw outdoor enthusiasts plus mild winters which are an added bonus!
