KAMLOOPS - After a bit of a cool down we are set to break more records this week as temperatures soar into the 30s once again.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 30 Celsius today which would tie a 1937 record for the warmest temperature ever recorded by the weather office for May 2. Tuesday is expected to hit 29 C, just shy of a record, and temperatures are expected to hit a high of 24 C before warming up to highs in the 30s again for the weekend.
The seasonal normal high for this time of year is 20 C in Kamloops.
Overnight lows are also expected to remain well above the seasonal normal low temperature of 6 C, with lows of just 10 C to 13 C forecast.
Sunshine is expected to accompany the high temperatures at the beginning and end of the week, with cloudy skies expected mid-week.
