Wintery weekend in store for Kamloops

Today's sun and cloud mix in Kamloops is expected to give way to a blustery, snowy day tomorrow, but things should rebound temperature-wise by midweek next week.

Kamloops residents could be in for another taste of winter this weekend before temperatures rebound next week.

It doesn’t look good for outdoor spring activities over the next couple of days, as Environment Canada says to expect plunging temperatures and a good chance of snow.

Still, the Kamloops forecast isn’t as bad as what residents in Southern Alberta could experience tomorrow into Saturday, as that region braces for a winter storm warning issued by Environment Canada that could see more than 15 centimetres of snow in Calgary and as much as 40 cm in other parts of the province over the next two days. Temperatures are expected to dip to -19 Celsius with windchills of -29 C and a risk of frostbite on Saturday in Calgary.

A mix of sun and cloud and high of 7 C is expected in Kamloops today, March 12, and is about as good as it’s going to get for the next few days with a forecast that calls for temperatures to drop to a high of 1 C tomorrow and only 0 C on Saturday.

Friday could feel like winter has returned, with periods of snow and west winds becoming northwest at 40 km/h, gusting to 70 near noon.

Saturday looks to be brighter with a sun and cloud mix, but still chilly and windy.

The sun returns on Sunday along with a slow return to more seasonal temperatures.

Sunday’s high of 3 C is expected to be the start of a week of sunshine, with daily highs rising to 15 C by Wednesday.

Kamloops normally experiences a high and low of 10 C and -1 C this time of year.
