You may not be thankful for the weather in Kamloops this long weekend

October 09, 2015 - 9:30 AM

KAMLOOPS - It may be a long weekend typically filled with family, friends and lots of food, but much of this Thanksgiving weekend will also be wet and windy.

While both the high and low temperatures are expected to be above normal throughout the weekend there will also be a chance of rain and strong winds as remnants of Hurricane Oho batter the west coast.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 20 Celsius today, Oct. 9, in Kamloops and temperatures throughout the rest of the weekend are expected to reach just above seasonal normals of 15 C, with highs of 16 C to 19 C in the forecast. Overnight lows are only forecast to dip to 9 C to 13 C, well above the seasonal normal low of 4 C.

While temperatures are expected to be at least a bit above seasonal normals all weekend, expect a lot of cloud and wind this weekend as well.

The weather office is calling for cloudy skies with a chance of rain Friday, Saturday and Monday, with Sunday being the only day expecting a full appearance by the sun. Winds are also expected to reach 30 gusting to 50 kilometres per hour Friday and then 40 gusting to 60 km/h on Saturday.
