Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement warning of a cold and blustery week ahead for Kamloops and the South Thompson.

Colder conditions will begin tomorrow, Nov. 26, across northern and central B.C. The cold air will persist through the end of the week with temperatures in the -15 Celsius to -25 C range, according to a special weather statement from Environment Canada.

Blustery northerly winds will accompany the arrival of the Arctic air with windchill becoming a factor tomorrow night and Wednesday, the alert says. Temperatures will also continue to drop Thursday and Friday as the Arctic air deepens over the Interior.

People who work outdoors or spend time outside are reminded to dress warmly and in layers preferably with a wind-resistant outer layer. Travellers are encouraged to add winter emergency kits to their vehicles which include a blanket, extra clothes and boots.
