KAMLOOPS - As February continues on, expect to see a second wave of winter after a relatively warm and dry January.
Today the high should reach -6 Celsius according to Environment Canada with flurries and wind gusting up to 60 km/h until noon. In the afternoon it should calm down, but cloudy skies will remain throughout the day and into the night. Overnight the low will reach -11 C.
Tomorrow a bit of sun should break through, along with a high of -7 C, but it may feel a bit colder as a 20 km/h wind comes through in the morning. Tuesday night will likely be the cold point of the week, as temperatures drop to -14 C.
Expect a return of the white stuff midweek. Wednesday is forecast to be cloudy, -6 C with a 60 per cent of flurries, followed by -8 C and periods of snow at night. Thursday it’ll get a bit warmer, with a high of -1 C and a 30 per cent chance of flurries, but cloudy skies will be sticking around, bringing snow that night.
Heading into the weekend plan for a high of 0 C on Friday, with periods of snow. In the evening the skies will start to clear, with cloudy periods overnight and a low of -6 C.
The weekend is currently expected to be warmer and sunny, with a high of 4 C on Saturday and 6 C on Sunday. Both days are forecast to be a mix of sun and cloud.
This week will be significantly cooler than usual, as Kamloops is normally between 2 C and -5 C this time of year.
