The weather outlook for the B.C. Day long weekend is a good news/bad news scenario.
First the bad news: A low-pressure system from the Gulf of Alaska is expected to bring showers.
The good news? The system isn’t expected to arrive until late Monday.
And there is more good news: Temperatures will moderate through the weekend, making for a more pleasant weekend in the outdoors at events such as the Kamloopa Pow-Wow and Sun Peaks Alpine Blossom Festival.
Most of the weekend is forecast to bring mainly sunny skies with a slight possibility of showers and an afternoon thunderstorm.
Temperatures are expected to reach 36 C Friday, but they ease back to 28 C Saturday and 25 C Sunday. Increasing cloudiness and wind Saturday afternoon could bring a risk thunderstorms. Sunday, with a mix of sun and cloud, should offer the best of long weekend weather.
With clouds returning Monday, rain is forecast overnight, followed by showers on Tuesday and a high of 24 C.
