Kamloops is warming up for Valentine’s Day

February 12, 2016 - 8:37 AM

KAMLOOPS - If an outdoor date is in your plans this Valentine’s Day, Mother Nature will likely have your back.

Environment Canada is calling for highs of 6 to 8 Celsius this weekend while overnight lows are expected to stay above 0 C. Seasonal normal temperatures at this time of year typically range from a high of 4 C to a low of -4 C.

Skies are expected to be cloudy today with a 40 per cent chance of showers. A mix of sun and cloud will be overhead Saturday, with rain or snow falling overnight before returning to cloudy skies and a small chance of flurries Sunday.

If the ski hills are you part of your date plans expect highs of 0 C to -2 C at Sun Peaks this weekend, along with a few flurries. For backcountry adventurers, you can expect a low to moderate risk of avalanche throughout the region for much of the weekend, according to Avalanche Canada forecasts.

As of Friday morning, Feb. 12, Drive B.C. is reporting slushy or slippery sections and fog on many highways in the Southern Interior, along with frost heaves along Highway 1 towards the Alberta border and water pooling through the Shuswap and North Okanagan regions.
