KAMLOOPS - A week of spring is coming in the middle of February in Kamloops.
The week ahead will be mild, according to Environment Canada, starting with a mix of sun and cloud today, Feb. 14. We should get a high of 6 Celsius during the day, followed by a low of -1 C tonight as clouds roll in with winds up to 20 km/h.
The breeze will continue tomorrow bringing rain clouds as we hit a high of 10 C with a 40 per cent chance of showers. In the evening the chance of showers will continue as temperatures drop only a couple of degrees to 7 C.
Thursday is forecast to be just as cloudy, but no showers with a high of 10 C again. That night there will be a more dramatic drop down to -2 C.
Friday will be much the same during the day, with cloudy skies and a high of 8 C. Heading into the weekend there may be some precipitation with a 30 per cent chance of showers or flurries and a low of 1 C.
The weekend is looking to be grey as well, with a high of 9 C on Saturday with a chance of showers. A high of 6 C on Sunday, with no showers, is currently predicted.
Currently all major highways east and west of Kamloops are open, after the weather-related chaos resulted in closures last week. Drive B.C. does have some alerts for slippery conditions on Highway 1 in the Shuswap.
