THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - We’re back above seasonal normals as temperatures continue to climb into the double digits, though we are unlikely to break any warm weather records this weekend.
According to Environment Canada temperatures in Kamloops and Penticton will reach 14 Celsius by Saturday while in Vernon and Kelowna temperatures will hit that mark by Sunday. Temperatures are forecast to hit the mid-teens through Monday in the Okanagan while Kamloops will likely see the mid-teens through next week.
The sun will shine on much of the region this weekend and temperatures are expected to remain above 0 C overnight. Normal temperatures at this time of year range from -2 C to 9 C.
Kamloops, Kelowna and Penticton are unlikely to reach record temperatures, which range from mid-teens to the low-20s, over the next several days, though Vernon could come within striking distance on Monday.
There is a chance of rain on the Okanagan Connector and the Coquihalla Highway from Merritt to Kamloops this morning while there could be snow on Highway 1 from Eagle Pass to Rogers Pass during the day and overnight.
