Weekend weather will be a little on the cool and wet side, Environment Canada says.

Friday’s forecasted high of 31 C could be the last hot afternoon of the summer in the city if a low-pressure system doesn’t roll in too soon. Increasing cloudiness is expected with 20 km/h winds from the east, easing off later in the evening.

The outlook for Saturday and Sunday is unsettled but not unseasonal. Saturday brings mostly cloudy skies and 22 C with a 40 percent chance of showers and cooler overnight temperatures — down to 13 C. Sunday looks more favourable for outdoor activities, a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 24 C. 

Similar conditions continue well into next week with a 40 percent chance of precipitation and 24 C Monday and Tuesday. Skies are not forecast to clear over Kamloops until Thursday, Sept. 1, when the day warms slightly to 26 C.
