Kamloops residents can expect a mix of weather conditions this week with some sunshine, some clouds and some possible showers.

It should stay warm, however, with daytime highs expected to remain above 20 Celsius right into next weekend.

Weather conditions were a marked contrast across the country this past weekend, with British Columbia seeing record-breaking heat along the coast and a pleasant warm weekend in the Interior, while parts of eastern Canada and the prairies suffered record-breaking cold and measurable snowfall.

Lytton, in the B.C. Interior, reached a high of 30.1 C on yesterday, May 10, while in Victoria the mercury made it to 27 C, Environment Canada's weather summery indicates. Record daily highs were also set yesterday in Abbotsford (29 C), Hope (30.2 C), Prince Rupert (24.4 C), White Rock (29.1 C) and Haines Junction (23 C).

In Ontario, however, record breaking cold temperatures were recorded as the province was enveloped in a polar vortex that saw as much as 16 centimetres of snow in Barrie, Ontario, according to a Weather Network report.

Toronto set a new low temperature daily record for May 9 with a temperature of -4.7 C, which is second coldest May temperature on record as well. Eight other daily records were broken in Ontario, which is expected to see a gradual warming trend as the week progresses.

Environment Canada says Kamloops should see a mainly sunny today,  May 11, with east winds at 30 km/h becoming light tonight. Today’s high in Kamloops should reach 24 C, with a low of 8 C tonight.

Another mainly sunny day is in store for Tuesday with a high of 23 C and a low of 8 C. Northwest winds should rise to 20 km/h late in the afternoon.

There is a 30 per cent possibility of showers Wednesday along with a mix of sun and cloud, a high of 24 C and a low of 9 C.

The possibility of showers continues into Thursday under mainly cloudy skies, a high of 22 C and a low of 11 C.

The end of the week comes with a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 23 C on Friday, along with a low of 11 C.

Saturday’s weather is expected to be similar, with a mix of sun and cloud, a high of 24 C and a low of 12 C, with clouds rolling in Saturday night.

Sunday looks cloudy at this point, with a high of 20 C expected.
