KAMLOOPS - A system moving through the Southern Interior coated mountain passes in heavy snow this weekend and it just might make its way into Kamloops this week.

A chance of rain this morning, Nov. 2, will give way to a mix of sun and clouds, according to Environment Canada. A chance of showers after midnight will be accompanied by a snow level 900 metres while the snow level will lower to 600 m along with a chance of rain Tuesday morning.

Temperature highs are expected to range from 5 Celsius to 9 C this week while overnight lows will likely dip to -2 C Tuesday through Thursday nights. Seasonal normal temperatures at this time of year are a high of 8 C and a low of 0 C.
