KAMLOOPS - Mother Nature gave us a bit of a reprieve this week but the temperatures will be back into the 30s again this weekend.
After several weeks of intense heat and then a week of near-normal temperatures, Kamloops will again see temperatures reach the low- to mid-30s Saturday through Monday.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 29 Celsius on Friday, July 17, but then Saturday is expected to reach 34 C and then 35 C is forecast for Sunday. While we will still be well shy of hitting any records, we will get to enjoy some sunshine with the heat.
By Tuesday, temperatures should be back down to seasonal normals.
If you’re heading down to the Okanagan expect similar temperatures, with Saturday set to be just a couple degrees cooler. Temperatures are expected to reach the low- to mid-30s Saturday through Tuesday throughout the region and will also be accompanied by lots of sun.
Environment Canada is calling for temperatures to be well above seasonal normals of 26 C in Salmon Arm as well, with highs expected to reach 34 C on Sunday.
