KAMLOOPS - Temperatures are expected to stay below normal this weekend but it won’t be long before we’re basking in sun and 30-degree temperatures again.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 18 Celsius today, May 27, and tomorrow with a high of 20 C forecast for Sunday. Beginning Monday the mercury will inch past the seasonal normal of 23 C as we head for temperatures in the 30s by the end of the week. Overnight lows should be near the seasonal normal of 9 C all weekend.

Along with the slightly cooler temperatures will be lots of cloud cover and at least a chance of rain every day this weekend. Along with a chance of showers today the weather office is also calling for a risk of thunderstorm.

The snow level is expected to rise from 1,300 metres to 1,800 m this afternoon.

A special weather statement is in place for the Okanagan Connector today while snow falls over higher elevations between Merritt and Kelowna.
