THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - Environment Canada is calling for some pretty spectacular weather this May long weekend.

Across the Thompson-Okanagan there will be sunny skies for much of the weekend, with highs getting up to 26 Celcius.

Those in Vernon can expect sunshine and a high of 26 C on Saturday, followed by a reprieve from the heat on Sunday with clouds and a high of 20 C. The skies are expected to clear Monday with temperatures getting up to 25 C. Lows over the three days fluctuate from 8 to 12 C.

Kelowna and Penticton will see similar trends with highs of 20 to 26 C with some cloudiness on Sunday. Mild lows of between 8 to 12 C are predicted.

The sun is expected to shine over Kamloops for most of the weekend, with some cloudy periods on Sunday. Highs are in the 20 to 26 C range, and lows around 12 C.

Fortunately, coming back to work on Tuesday after the long weekend will be a bit more bearable with a continuation of gorgeous, sunny weather. The temperature is set to climb to highs of 27 C on Tuesday and Wednesday across the Thompson-Okanagan with plenty of sunshine to go with it. On second thought, the nice weather might in fact make it harder to go back to work.
