KAMLOOPS - Above normal temperatures are back, but they come with a chance of rain and thunderstorms over the next few days.

After several days of off and on rain, and even a few thunderstorms, Environment Canada is still calling for a chance of rain through the end of the week. There is a chance of showers with a risk of a thunderstorm today and Thursday along with a chance of showers on Friday.

Temperatures are expected to be above seasonal normals for the next week, with the forecast calling for temperatures to reach as high as 30 Celsius in Kamloops Thursday and 29 C in the Okanagan on the weekend.
