Tomorrow's weather will be essentially the same, with a high of 6 C and mainly cloudy skies, though some sun should peak through. Overnight there will likely be showers or flurries as the temperature drop to 1 C.
Wednesday will be a little cooler, but a little brighter. A high of 4 C is predicted with a mix of sun and cloud. A chance of flurries arrives at night, when the temperature falls to -3 C.
Thursday will be very similar, with a mix of sun and cloud and high of 4 C, but there’s a 40 per cent of showers as well. That night we’ll see a low of -4 C and the chance of showers will remain.
Friday should be the same, with a mix of sun and cloud, chance of showers and high of 4 C, followed by -7 C at night and a continued chance of showers.
The weekend is looking similar, with highs of 5 C, a mix of sun and cloud and low of -4 C.
The week is forecast to be fairly average for Kamloops in late February, with temperatures between 5 C and -3 C. This time of year also typically sees little to no precipitation.
All major highways are open to the coast and Albertan border, though Drive B.C. does list some warnings due to low visibility and slippery sections on Highways 1, 3 and 5 currently. Check their website for most up to date conditions.
