KAMLOOPS - Spring weather during the days and cooler nights are coming for Kamloops.

Today, March 2, we can expect the temperature to reach a high of 6 Celsius with some wet flurries or showers around the city, according to Environment Canada. It’ll be a bit breezy as well, with wind coming through the valley, gusting up to 50 kilometres per hour. The wind will stay through the night as Kamloops drops to 2 C with partly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow will be grey, damp and still a little windy. Temperatures should reach a high of 8 C with clouds, showers and winds gusting up to 40 km/h. Overnight showers and clouds will stick around as the temperature drops to -2 C.

The weekend will be a bit brighter, with Saturday starting off with a mix of sun and cloud. The high should be around 8 C during the day, dropping to -4 C overnight with flurries arriving.

Flurries and showers will stick around for Sunday, predicted to be a cloudy day with a high of 6 C and clouds. That’ll carry through to the night, forecast to be -2 C with a chance of flurries or showers.

Next week is looking to send us much of the same, with day time temperatures around 7 C, clouds and a chance of showers, and nights around freezing.

Temperatures are expected to be about average, as Kamloops typically sees highs of 8 C this time of year and lows around -2 C.

There's currently an ongoing snowfall warning on the Coquihalla Highway from Environment Canada as up to 25 centimetres are expected between now and the end of Friday, March 3.
