A spring-like weather pattern is expected to bring a thunderstorm to the region today and make for a showery start to the weekend in Kamloops.

The weekend is expected to start with a 60 per cent chance of showers on Saturday under cloudy skies and cooler temperatures, with Saturday’s high expected at 15 C.

The showers are expected to continue overnight with a low of 4 C.

A sun cloud mix is anticipated on Sunday, but it will remain on the cool side with a high of 13 C and a low of 8 C, as a 40 per cent chance of showers return for Sunday night.
