KAMLOOPS - Much needed rain is in the forecast this week.
Environment Canada is calling for at least a chance of rain nearly every day 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 30 C Tuesday. Wednesday is expected to be closer to the seasonal normal high of 22 C and then temperatures dip below the normal, with a high of just 18 C forecast for Thursday.
Overnight lows are expected to remain above the seasonal normal of 8 C, with lows of just 10 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 every day except Tuesday.
