KAMLOOPS - We have a couple more days of below normal temperatures and rain before the heat envelopes Kamloops heading into Canada Day.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of just 20 Celsius today, June 24, and then a high of 25 C is expected Saturday. Sunday temperatures will rise above the seasonal normal high of 26 C, and is the last day of the month where the temperature is expected to remain below 30 C, though barely. Beginning Monday, and through the end of the month, temperatures in the 30s are expected. Tuesday is forecast to be the hottest day with a high of 37 C predicted.
Before we can get to the sunshine and heat expected to close out June we will have to deal with some more showers. The weather office is calling for showers dropping up to 15 millimetres of rain today, along with a risk of thunderstorm, and then increasing cloudiness Saturday with a chance of showers in the afternoon and overnight.
Overnight lows are not expected to vary from the seasonal normal low of 13 C.
