OKANAGAN - Mother Nature gave us a bit of a reprieve this week, but the temperatures will be back into the 30s again this weekend.

After several weeks of intense heat and then a week of near-normal temperatures, the Okanagan will again see temperatures reach the low- to mid-30s Saturday through Tuesday.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of about 29 Celsius on Friday, July 17, but then Saturday is expected to reach 32 C and a balmy 36 C is forecast for Sunday. While we will still be well shy of hitting any records, we will get to enjoy some sunshine with the heat.

By Wednesday, temperatures should be back down to seasonal normals.

If you’re craving a bit more heat, Kamloops should be warmer on Saturday, when the temperature is expected to reach a high of 34 C, while Sunday will be similar in temperature at 35 C, along with full sunshine both days.

Environment Canada is calling for temperatures to be well above seasonal normals of 26 C in Salmon Arm as well, with highs expected to reach 34 C on Sunday.
