KAMLOOPS - The unsettled cooler weather of the past week will continue through the long weekend.

“A trough over the province has brought cooler air to much of the province, below seasonal temperatures with weather systems impacting the province every one to three days,” Environment Canada meteorologist Lisa Ervine says.

Kamloops can expect a high of 22 Celsius today, Aug. 30, with a 30 per cent chance of showers and a possible thunderstorm as a low pressure system moves out of the province this afternoon, Ervine says.

Tomorrow is expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 24 C, followed by a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 24 C on Saturday.

Sunday will see another system pass through Kamloops, bringing with it a 60 per cent chance of rain and only a high of 21 C. On Labour Day Monday, the forecast calls for sunshine and a high of 21 C.

A high pressure system is expected to bring a return to sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-20s following Labour Day on Monday, Ervine says.

Normal high temperatures for this time of year in Kamloops are around 25 C.
