KAMLOOPS - Mother Nature has a mixed bag of weather in store for Kamloops this week, but at least the bag includes sun and double digit temperatures.
After a weekend of temperatures in the mid-teens, Environment Canada is calling for a high of 8 Celsius today, March 7, just below the seasonal normal of 9 C, but then temperatures are expected to warm up to between 11 C and 13 C for the rest of the week.
Low temperatures are expected to be above normal all week, with lows expected to drop to just above 0 C most nights and only 5 C on Wednesday night. The seasonal normal low temperature at this time of year is -2 C.
Showers are expected to begin by late morning today but with the snow level rising from 800 metres to 1,100 metres in the afternoon, higher elevations may see more snow. The rest of the week is expected to be a mix of sun and cloud.
Drive B.C. is currently reporting foggy conditions along with some slippery sections and water pooling in the North Okanagan and sections of Highway 1 heading towards Revelstoke.
