KAMLOOPS - Today may be a bit cooler, and a whole lot cloudier, than we’ve been experiencing, but it is just a blip in the warm weather this spring has been known for.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of just 18 Celsius today, April 29, just a degree below the seasonal normal high temperature, but Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be progressively warmer as we head towards a forecast high of 29 C for Monday.

Overnight lows will also remain above the seasonal normal of 5 C, with lows of 6 C to 9 C forecast.

Along with the cooler temperature and cloudy skies, a chance of showers and winds gusting to 40 kilometres per hour are expected today. Sunny skies are expected the rest of the weekend, and the start of next week.
