KAMLOOPS - After school today spring break officially begins, and with the weekend expected to be mostly dry and warm, you should get at least a couple of days of being able to toss the kids outside to run their energy off.

Environment Canada is calling for temperatures to hit at or just above the seasonal normal high of 12 Celsius over the weekend, with the mercury warming up to 15 C to start the new week Monday. Overnight temperatures are expected to stay above the seasonal normal low of 0 C, with tonight, March 18, expected to be the coolest at 1 C. Lows of just 4 C are expected Saturday and Sunday night.

Sunny skies are expected today, along with wind gusting to 40 kilometres per hour this afternoon, and a mix of sun and cloud, along with those wind gusts again, are expected Saturday. Sunday is expected to bring cloudy skies and a chance of rain overnight, which will continue through Monday.

If you’re looking to get in a couple final ski runs this weekend expect temperatures to reach as high as 3 C at Sun Peaks this weekend, along with a mix of sun and cloud. If backcountry travel is on the agenda, forecasters are warning you to take extra precautions following four avalanche-related deaths earlier this week in the Interior.
