KAMLOOPS - The snow may be causing chaos now, but that’s likely short lived as positive temperatures and sunshine are expected this weekend.

Environment Canada is forecasting periods of snow today, Feb. 9, which will bring another 2 centimetres for Kamloops with cloudy skies and a high of -4 Celsius. As we head into the evening those periods of snow will break up, with a 40 per cent chance of flurries overnight and a low of -4 C.

The warming trend kicks in tomorro, with a high of 3 C, clouds and a 40 per cent chance of flurries in the morning, turning into wet flurries or rain showers in the afternoon. In the evening the wet flurries and showers may remain as the night drops to -5 C.

A bit of a change is predicted the weekend, as Saturday is predicted to be a clear, sunny day with a high of 5 C during the day, dropping to -2 C at night with some cloud rolling in, and it will set the trend for the next couple days. Sunday is expected to be similar, with a mix of sun and clouds and a high of 6 C during the day and low of -4 C during the night.

Family Day, on Monday, Feb 13, will be similar again, with a mix of sun and cloud, high of 5 C and low of -1 C.

Currently Drive B.C. and Environment Canada have issued warnings for highways east and west of the Thompson region as Highway 1 is closed due to an avalanche risk. Avalanche Canada is also listing the avalanche risk for regions east of Kamloops as ‘considerable.’
