KAMLOOPS – The high temperatures are sticking around for the weekend in Kamloops with barely a cloud expected in the skies.

Today, July 6, is likely to be one of the hottest days of the year, according to Environment Canada, as a high of 37 Celsius is predicted for the Kamloops area with direct sun the whole day. Overnight the temperature is expected to only fall to 18 C.

Tomorrow isn’t going to be much cooler, with a high of 35 C forecast and sunny skies. It might feel a bit cooler with a breeze around 30 km/h in the morning. At night, the low will be around 18 C.

Saturday is going to be fairly similar, with a high of 35 C, but no breeze forecast, so it will likely feel warmer. In the evening the temperature will only fall to 17 C.

Sunday will be a couple degrees cooler again, around 32 C for a high. In the evening some clouds will show up, with a low of 16 C.

Next week looks like it will be a little cooler, but still full of sunshine, with highs in the high 20s.

Environment Canada has issued an alert for most the Southern Interior, warning about the heat wave and dry weather as temperatures reach into the high 30s. Fires and illness related to heat are both concerns.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in Kamloops are highs of 28 C and lows of 13 C.
