KAMLOOPS - It’s going to get colder before it gets warmer, but once some cloud cover roles in temperatures are expected to rise.

This the deep freeze Kamloops has been in should begin to lift over the weekend and taper off next week, but get ready for the snow.

Environment Canada is forecasting a mix of sun and cloud today, Dec. 15, with a high of -13 Celsius. With the wind out of the west at 20 kilometres per hour, expect a windchill of -25 C. It will be mainly cloudy overnight with a low of -19 C, but again with the brisk wind, the windchill will make it much colder, -29 C.

Tomorrow, the forecast calls for a mix of sun and cloud with a high of -13 Celsius during the day and low of -21 C overnight, which could be the coldest night so far this season. However, once we’re through that night temperatures are trending upwards for the next seven days.

Saturday and Sunday will both be cloudy, but Saturday should warm to a -14 C while Sunday is expected to get up to -8 C. Sunday night there may be periods of snow, which will continue into next week.

The warming trend should continue into next week, with cloudy, snowy days. Wednesday, Dec. 21 may actually be above freezing, with 2 C forecast currently.

The average for the season is typically 0 to -6 C for the region. While it’s been cold, the city is a few degrees above the mid-December record setting temperatures of the 1950s, 60s and 70s which are as low as -29.4 C.
