Final weekend of summer bringing the heat

THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - The first day of fall is around the corner, but before it arrives, we get the chance to bask in the final weekend of summer.

The autumnal equinox falls on Tuesday, Sept. 22 in our part of the world, marking the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Before that can happen though, Mother Nature is granting us a couple more days of warm, sunny weather.

In Kamloops temperatures will soar to 28 Celsius over the weekend, eight degrees warmer than normal seasonal temperatures, while the rest of the region can expect see temperatures six to eight degrees warmer than the normal 19 C typically seen at this time of year.

The weekend forecast also calls for sun throughout the region before mixing with cloud and slightly cooler temperatures of 24 C on Monday. Tuesday, the final day of summer, will see temperatures range from 20-24 C across the region.
