KAMLOOPS - We can expect to start the week off a bit cooler and wetter than we’ve been, but by the end of the week we should have slightly warmer temperatures and lots of sun to make up for it.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 9 Celsius today, March 14, just below the seasonal normal high of 11 C, but the temperature is expected to warm up to 12 C by the end of the week. Overnight lows are expected to dip to between -2 C and 0 C this week, right on par with the seasonal normal low of -1 C.
Along with the slightly cooler temperatures today we can expect a chance of rain with a chance of flurries at higher terrains. The snow level is expected to rise to 900 metres from 600 m this afternoon. A chance of rain is also expected tomorrow, the snow level will remain at 900 m, and then it’s currently all sunshine in the forecast.
While we are only expecting a chance of rain or flurries in town today, Drive B.C. is warning of winter driving conditions on the Coquihalla Highway. Currently highway reports are showing compact snow and slushy sections throughout the stretch from the Coquihalla Summit to Kamloops. Compact snow and slushy sections are also being reported on other Interior highways.
