Kamloops weather well on the way to setting new records this week

KAMLOOPS - As temperatures in Kamloops keep hitting well above 30 Celsius the possibility of new records being set is very real today and tomorrow.

Temperatures climbed above 30 C nearly every day for the last two weeks and we can expect the same through the beginning of next week.

The temperature reached 35.5 C Tuesday, July 7, but it was not quite enough for a record. With records ranging from 37 C to 41 C over the next few days, a new record is still within reach this week.

According to Environment Canada temperatures will reach 37 C today and remain in the upper-30s until Saturday and Sunday, when temperatures are expected to reach only 30 C. The sky will remain sunny through Friday and then we can expect a mix of sun and clouds, along with a 30 per cent chance of rain on Sunday.

While the air is a bit clearer this morning a smoky air advisory remains in place and we can expect local smoke in the air for the next couple of days.
