A wet start, but temperatures on the rise later this week in Kamloops

July 18, 2016 - 11:30 AM

KAMLOOPS - Sick of listening to people grumble about the rainy weather? It isn’t letting up completely just yet, but by the end of the the week Environment Canada expects sunny skies.

Today, July 18, has an expected high of 29 Celsius and a low of 16 C. The afternoon brings a 40 per cent chance of showers along with a risk of a thunderstorm. In fact, a severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for the region. Forgetting the rain for a moment, today’s forecast high temperature is right on par with the seasonal normal of 29 C.

Expect a high of 23 C and a low of 13 C tomorrow. Prepare for a bit of rain tomorrow as well with Environment Canada calling for about 5 to 10 mm and a risk of thunderstorms.

Wednesday's forecast calls for a 30 per cent chance of showers with a high of 27 C and low of 13 C.

Keep your fingers crossed because heading into the weekend the weather should be stellar with temperatures above 30 C and no rain in the forecast.
