Chance of snow at higher elevations around Kamloops tonight

KAMLOOPS - We all know it’s officially fall but you may not be ready to hear this — snow levels are dropping to 1,300 metres tonight.

Environment Canada is calling for a low of just 7 Celsius tonight, Oct. 2, just above seasonal normals of 5 C, but with a 60 per cent chance of showers and the snow level lowering to 1,300 m overnight, we could wake to a dusting of snow on the hilltops.

Temperatures are expected to reach 16 C today and Saturday and then will jump to 19 C on Sunday. Lows are forecast to hit just below normal Saturday night, with a low of 3 C, and then 5 C on Sunday night.

There will be a mix of sun and cloud as well as a 60 per cent chance of showers today and overnight, along with winds of 30 gusting to 50 kilometres per hour. The wind will stick around Saturday but the skies should be sunny both Saturday and Sunday.

Next week is expected to start with sunny skies and a high of 19 C.
