KAMLOOPS - Mother Nature has been dishing out warmer temperatures most of February and the last week of the month is expected to be much the same.
Environment Canada recorded a high of 11.1 Celsius over the weekend, well above the 7 C that was forecast for Saturday and the seasonal normal high of 6 C. Today, Feb. 22, and Tuesday are expected to hit right at the seasonal normal before warming up to the double digits by Friday.
Overnight lows are expected to range from 0 C to -4 C this week, within a couple degrees of the seasonal normal low at this time of year, -3 C.
The skies over Kamloops are expected to be a mix of sun and cloud much of the week, with Tuesday expected to be the sunniest day.
Drive B.C. is reporting a mix of winter driving conditions on Interior highways, including compact snow, slushy sections and slippery sections. Debris on the road has closed one southbound lane on the Coquihalla Highway from the Portia Interchange to the Box Canyon chainup area.
Periods of snow or flurries are expected to end this morning at the mountain passes of Highway 3 and Highway 1, though a chance of snow remains from the Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass area through tonight.
