This week will end on a cool and unsettled note weather-wise in Kamloops before the sun comes out and temperatures begin to rise in time for the weekend.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement today as a weather system moves through southern B.C. bringing showers to the region and up to five centimetres of snow on the Okanagan Connector as the snow level drops to between 1,300 and 1,500 metres tonight, May 21.

The weather to the east of B.C. is expected to be even more volatile as Alberta and Saskatchewan are preparing for thunderstorms and heavy rain, up to 60 millimetres worth, today and tomorrow, according to a Weather Network report. The Alberta foothills could also see some snow.
