OKANAGAN - Much needed rain is in the forecast this week.

Environment Canada is calling for at least a chance of rain several days this week, something firefighters in the Kamloops Fire Centre, who battled several wildfires this past weekend, will likely be quite thankful for.

Temperatures are expected to remain above normal the first half of the week, with a high of 27 Celsius forecast for today, May 16, and 29 C Tuesday. Wednesday is expected to reach 24 C and then temperatures dip below the seasonal normal of 21 C, with a high of just 16 C forecast for Thursday.

Overnight lows are expected to remain above the seasonal normal of 7 C, with lows of just 9 C to 13 C forecast throughout the week.

A mix of sun and cloud is expected today and tomorrow, followed by cloud cover the rest of the week. At least a chance of rain is expected Wednesday through Friday, with showers forecast overnight on Wednesday.
