KAMLOOPS - The cooler, wetter weather is expected to continue through the beginning of this week.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 18 Celsius today, June 13, quite a bit below the seasonal normal of 25 C. Tuesday is expected to be even cooler, with a high of just 15 C in the forecast, but temperatures should then warm up to the 20 C mark for the rest of the week.

Overnight lows are expected to remain cooler than the seasonal normal of 11 C this week as well, with temperatures dipping as low as 4 C, Tuesday night.

Along with the cooler weather will be a mix of sun and cloud all week, as well as a chance of showers today through Wednesday. A risk of afternoon or evening thunderstorms is also in the forecast for today and tomorrow.
