Spring-like weather to continue this week in Kamloops

Showers in the forecast this week could mean more flurries at higher elevations in Kamloops.

KAMLOOPS - With temperatures staying above seasonal normals most days, and at least a chance of rain several days, this week is shaping up to be another one full of spring-like weather.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 8 Celsius today, Feb. 29, which is right on par with seasonal normal temperatures. The week will continue to warm up, with a high of 12 C in the forecast by the end of the week.

Overnight lows are expected to be at least five degrees above the seasonal normal low of -3 C every night this week, with lows of 2 C in the forecast for most nights.

Skies are expected to clear this morning with a chance of showers, or flurries at higher terrain, expected overnight. Showers are expected to continue tomorrow, again with as much as two centimetres of flurries over higher terrain, and are expected to be followed by cloudy skies Wednesday and Thursday and a mix of sun and cloud Friday.

A mix of snow and rain hit many Interior highways overnight, leaving a mix of compact snow, water pooling, blowing snow, slushy sections and slippery sections, according to Drive B.C. Heavy snow or strong crosswinds and blowing snow are also being reported in some areas.
