KAMLOOPS - August is usually a hot, dry month in Kamloops. The average high temperature in 2015 was 29.9 Celsius.

This year, August should start off with similar high temperatures, but may bring rain and thunderstorms as well, says Environment Canada.

Today, Monday Aug. 1, should be sunny, shifting to a mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon. Today's forecasted high is 29 C, with a low of 15 C.

Tuesday isn't looking good. Expect showers and a risk of thunderstorms starting early in the afternoon. The morning may bring high winds of 20 km/hr. Tuesday's high temperature is predicted to reach 24 C.

As of right now, don't plan on Wednesday being much better. Wednesday is calling for mixed sun and clouds with a high of 29 C and a 40 per cent chance of showers. 

Things should start to turn around on Thursday. Expect sunny skies with a high of 29 C, dropping down to 13 C in the evening.
