KAMLOOPS - Plan for rain in the Tournament Capital tomorrow.

Tomorrow, Sept. 8, there is a 60 per cent chance of showers which is expected to bring cooler temperatures to the area, according to Environment Canada.

Until then, however, Kamloops is likely to be hot with temperatures nearing 30 Celsius which is expected to return for the beginning of next week.

Today, Sep. 7, we are expecting a mix of sun and cloud with local smoke. The high is expected to reach 28 C. Overnight will be mainly cloudy with temperature predicted to fall to 19 C. A special air quality statement continues for Kamloops and the South Thompson due to wildfire activity in the area.

Tomorrow's forecast will bring rain to Kamloops breaking the dry weather. Environment Canada says Kamloops received 8.6 millimetres of rain through June, July and August which is abnormal. Last year those same months produced 81.8 millimetres of rain. Despite the reprieve from the dry weather, it is unlikely Kamloops will see a break from the forest fire smoke which is expected to stay. The rain is not expected to linger into the evening tomorrow. Temperatures are likely to drop from a high of 24 C to 15 C.

It is anticipated that Saturday and Sunday will have a high of 24 C. Saturday will be cloudy, however, Sunday is expected to be a mix of sun and cloud. In the evening the clouds are predicted to leave Kamloops so people should plan for the hot and sunny weather to return to the Tournament Capital next week.

Normal temperatures for this time of year are highs of 23 C and lows of 9 C.
